      Combining Invoices and Purchase Orders

      Post

      Has anyone combined the "Invoices" and the "Purchase Order" Starter solutions?  

      I am just starting out with FileMaker and would like to combine the two.  I have started by adding the Purchase Order tab to the "Invoice" starter solutions.  The objective would be to add to the inventory by way of the "Invoices" tab and to subtract from the inventory by way of the "Purchase Order" Tab.

      Any help would be apprieciated.

          Combining two starter solutions into the same file can be done, but it's not a simple excersize. It's not something I can recommend unless you've already got a pretty good understanding of how fileMaker works when it comes to working with tables, table occurrences, relationships and scripts.

          You will likely find it easier to take either of the two solutions and add your own added tables, layouts, relationships, script etc to reproduce the functions of the second file in your customized copy of the other.
