You have probably been using FileMaker Pro for a while, maintaining databases that other people have designed, and even designing some yourself. You may have created several databases to track information such as contacts, inventory, or other information that you can’t adequately manage using a spreadsheet or word processing application. However, you may be faced with a project where a single FileMaker database cannot manage data that needs to be accessed from multiple tables spread in different database files.
In addition, you are required to share your database with other users on a network. In this course, you will set up an integrated database system dealing with data found in multiple database files. You will also make the database accessible to someone in the same office, or anyone who is searching for information using a web browser without compromising on the security by taking the necessary precautions.
You will create a database model based on relationships between tables that hold data. You will automate tasks based on scripts, work with functions and data found in external data sources. In addition, you will publish your database on the web and provide utilitarian features to users.
This course is for the students who have some experience using FileMaker Pro and are aware that their need for managing data exceeds their current capabilities. In addition, this course is for the FileMaker Pro 9 user that needs to share databases with other users on a network or over the Internet.
Before taking this course, students should have completed the FileMaker Pro 9: Level 1 course. In addition, they should be familiar with the basic functions of their computer’s operating system.
