Duration: 1.00 days (8 hours)

This class introduces scripting for those who have just completed our Intermediate FileMaker Pro course or are already familiar with FileMaker Pro and are seeking to develop more useful solutions. You’ll explore detailed handouts (useful later for reference), participate in active discussions and try out what you learn on the computer.

You’ll find out how to use scripts to automate common searches, edit data, generate reports, and send emails. We’ll explore dialogs, logical branching, looping, script triggers, variables, and script parameters. And you will get to ask about your specific interests.
