      Hi everyone,

       

      Im very new to filemaker & this is the first of any retail management system i have ever tries so im a complete beginner.

       

      I own a small retail store selling sports supplements.

       

      I have created a database stock inventory (from templates)

      Customer contacts list

      To do list.

       

      The next step is trying to set up an administrator screen with all of this info on one screen.

       

      The dream is to set up a barcode scanner that will take off products as i sell them from my stock inventory.

       

      Can anyone give me some pointers or advice or links that could point me in the right direction.

       

      Thanks

             Sometimes, it's better to start with something premade, that can do 80-90% of what you want, and extend it from there.  What you're asking for seems to be fairly common, and I'm sure there are ready-made packages out there.  Of course, I can't suggest any, as I prefer building my own applications, as I've been doing for the past 15 years.
