    Database Review?

    Jamiesmith

      Hi All

       

      i am dabbling in the Filemaker world and i am designg a database to hold business names and quotes related to each individual customer.

       

      so far i have the home layout, contact layout and half of the quote section.

       

      i have stumbled my way through so far with great help from the community to date, my question is, does anyone want to have a look for me and see if what i am doing the most robust and best practice? i am happy to upload the file for someone to cast their eye over?

       

      what do you think? anyone interested in see ing how the non-filemaker educated live?

       

      Ta

      Jamie

          Jamie,

           

          Have you checked out the "invoices" starter solution included with filemaker. It may offer some pieces and parts that translate well for your solution. Also, you should go through the basic (free) and advanced ($19.99) filemaker training series to understand the core concepts of using FileMaker.

           

          You'll find better help here if you have specific questions, rather than vague "check out my file" posts. While I'm sure a lot of us would be willing to help you, our time as mentors and trainers is valuable to us as well, and hiring a mentor consultant would be more appropriate if you're looking for someone to train you.

           

          What's your end goal for FileMaker? Are you only interested in using it for your own solution (casual development), or are you interested in possibly developing solutions for others as well (consulting development)?
