Most books on databases approach the reader with descriptions of how to use tools, and make some reference to putting those tools into a real-world context. FileMaker 8 @Work: Projects and Techniques to Get the Job Done turns this approach on its ear by introducing key tools in a single chapter, then moves on to what you really want to know - how to use the product to complete the projects that they face at work. This book provides step-by-step coverage of how to complete a variety of projects that a panel of users has verified as common projects those using the application are asked to complete. Tips, tricks, and notes are provided with the information you need to carry over what you learn on these projects to others you'll undoubtedly be asked to create.
