 user guides question
We are looking for a good user guide/manual to supplement the one that
came with the software. We are using the database for linguistics
research and want to collate text strings. Something with a good index,
info on calculation formulas, relational databases and details on
functions. We have version 5.0.

We live in the middle of nowhere and have to order something on-line, so
we want to get the right book.

Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks

To Tim's suggestion, with which I concur, I would add Scriptology by Matt
Petrowsky and John Mark Osborne.  It is slightly more advanced but has a
CD containing hundred of technique files which in my experience have been
invaluable.  It would certainly help you come to a better understanding of
what can be done with the text functions which your work will surely
demand.  There is a searchable index for the technique files, as well as
detailed databases of functions and  script steps.  The book itself covers
scripting and calculation basics, validations, value lists, data
operations, relationships, portals, debugging techniques (scripts, calcs
and relationships) and interface issues.

You can find out more from:

You may care to read the last article on my Web site, which reviews
sources for FileMaker.

Dear Sonja:

If you can read German, there are two excellent books:

one by Klaus Kegebein ISBN 3908489016
one by Dr. Christopher Busch ISBN 3908489881

Both include CDs.

Met vriendelijke groet / Mit freundlichen Gruessen / With kind regards
