      Using Filemaker as a Resume (CV) Database

      Post

      Has anyone used FM Pro as a database for candidate resumes? We're looking for a tool that allows us to boolean search resumes for key words.

       

      Does FM allow you to attach Word or pdf files to an entry (i.e. candidate profile), and let you search the content of that file?

       

      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

          Thank you for your post.

           

          FileMaker Pro does allow you to attach Word and/or PDF files to an entry, but it will not search the content of that file.  Many users copy the contents of the documents and paste the data into a text field where searching is possible.  You can still have the file attached, AND you will now have information in another field to search.

           

          Let me know if you need clarification.
