I have noticed in Lots of calculations/ functions. Similar approaches are made with the writing of

how they work,etc, but logic is mostly not documented.


Seems to me like you need a beginning value,

Strip / trim upper / lowercase a value, Get the valuecount( ) of something,etc,etc


BUt what gets me is understanding the algorithms or are they preset from scientific backgrounds ,etc


I am just blown away by how these functions work rather than the "Application". However i have also noticed that spending time

writing / playing around with the filemaker built in functions has been helpful as well.

Can someone please help guide me in figuring out how to be better at writing calculations or

Is it to just try things and see what works & what doesn't.
