      Organizing my contact by Company instead of Name (Beginner)

      Post

      Hi,

       

      I just received Filemaker Pro 10 for my mac and am trying to figure out how to organize my contact by Company as I have multiple contacts for each company I deal with. It would be great if I could have it organized so that with the drop down menu within contact management, I can have the option to view them by name or by company. How am I able to do this? 

       

      THank you so much in advance for your help!

          Thank you for your post.

           

          To organize your contacts by Company, the primary sort would be Company name with Last Name being the secondary sort.  You can also include First Name as the tertiary sort.

           

          If you have a drop-down list by Company, you may want to consider a calculation field that displays the Company, First Name and Last Name.  That way, you can select the specific contact at a specific company.

           

          Let me know if you need clarification for any of the above steps.
