If you are new to FileMaker and relational database design, it 's probably not something that you can manage without investing a great deal of time and effort. You might look for other FileMaker solutions that are already designed to function as a unified system. You might, for example, search for FM Starting Point.
Hey Phil, thanks for answering.
Yeah i am a noob at FM
But i have a couple of contacts that have been using it for many years. i can ask them.
I wanted to know if it was possible to get as far as i could...
So are you saying it is possible though?
It is possible, but it will take a great deal of design work to redesign the different starter solutions to use the same table so that the data is shared between them. This is complicated by a completely unprofessional lack of documentation/comments that forces you to "reverse engineer" the design of each file to figure out how it works.
Thanks for replying, Phil.
i tough i could have one stand alone app... with the same customer database that talks to all de modules.
I've checked out FM starting point, it is kinda what i need, but jeez it's pretty advance and i wouldn't use half of it.
i figure i could spend the time designing my own compare to the time i would spend modifying FMSP.
anyway, thanks for your time
(and sorry if my english seems lousy)
