Overview

FileMaker Pro isn't content to rest on its laurels. Version 5.5 is full of new and improved features and is compatible with both Windows 2000 and Mac OS X. You could say the same about FileMaker Pro 5.5 for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide, the quickest, easiest way to get up and running with this bestselling database package, whether you're upgrading from a previous version or are new to databases entirely.

Working with databases can be complex, but with FileMaker Pro 5.5: VQS, learning how doesn't have to be. The book is loaded with screenshots and concise, step-by-step explanations of critical database publishing tasks. You can start with the basics—like working with records and files—or use the book's tabbed format to page straight to complete coverage of version 5.5's new features (including its enhanced Web publishing tools and SQL support). And FileMaker is compatible with Microsoft Office now; author Nolan Hester shows you how to import data from Excel, mail merge from a Word document, and much more. If you're still using FileMaker to simply store records, you clearly need this book.
