FileMaker 9 was built to work with related data and make it seem easy. Related fields, for example, work just like ordinary fields. Not only can you put them on layouts, but you can use them in Find mode and the Sort dialog box too.
Now you’re ready to learn how to take advantage of FileMaker’s relational capabilities to make the best database system possible. You can make data entry a breeze, minimize double-entry, show data from different tables side by side, and easily move from one kind of data to another. You can also give each relationship you create special powers to make creating, deleting, and displaying related records easier. This chapter shows you how to do all these things.
