This is a very good book on FileMaker Pro 6. However, with the release of FileMaker 7, I would consider this book obsolete. Too many things change in FileMaker 7, that many of the techniques and tricks explained here are either unnecessary, or actually bad. But if you're stuck using FileMaker 6 (and many projects will remain on FileMaker 6 for years to come), this is a very good way to learn how to best use the product. The examples that come on the CD are also very good, with nice designs that you can easily reuse.

Even though this book was written for an earlier version of FileMaker, I am glad to have it in my library as a reference. It is readable and many of the principles described apply to any database, regardless of version.

The writing style won me over. I could pick a quote from nearly any section of the book, but I'll choose one from early on: "Every time you wait in line to get grocery money out of an ATM, you are waiting to access a database."

It could have been written: "Every time you get money out of an ATM, you are accessing a database." Dull! The example was made immediate by including the

"grocery money" and the "wait in line" parts of the experience.

The style includes humor, of course: "...if you had a degree in mathematics or were, yourself, a robot..." (p. 10, talking about creating unique IDs for your database).

I started at Chapter 0 and worked my way through the entire book. Even with my background, which was not that of a beginner, I learned something from nearly every page.

The most helpful chapters to me have been:

Chapter 15: Designing, Estimating, Planning, Developing, and Managing FileMaker Projects

Chapter 5: Developing Relational Databases

Chapter 12: FileMaker at the Center: Emulating or Integrating FileMaker Pro with Other Software (an eye-opener to me).

The chapters I refer to most often (after 15 and 5) are:

Chapter 14: FileMaker Pro Development Conventions

Chapter 7: ScriptMaker

Appendix A: Useful FileMaker Tips and Tricks

These are the chapters that have tattered the book.

This is definitely one of the best-organized and best-written computer books that I have encountered in the last 22 years of reading technical books and manuals.
Kubica has written a book that is approachable for any novice to FileMaker and databases in general. The real genius is that he does so without making the more advanced user bored and irritated. Even in the early chapters I learned a trick or two.
The best way to learn is through examples. You'd think that technical writers would get that through their head after all of these years. I don't need syntax. I can get syntax from the manuals that come with the program. What I need is someone to show me how to accomplish more advanced and polished functions. Kubica has learned the lesson of providing examples. They are abundant, but don't usually take up unnecessary space in the pages of the book. They are referred to in the book at appropriate junctures and the accompanying CD/Rom has them all.
I have only one complaint: (1) the publisher screwed around with the book (even canceling it once!) for so long that this book is making a far too-long delayed appearance. I don't know how radical a change we are in for when FileMaker 7 makes its appearance this fall. I do hope that Kubica's guide to that version will arrive much faster.

Wonderful book. This guy not only knows his Filemaker, he is a gifted writer. Clear style, steady pace, solid communication. However, the book has not been updated to my knowledge and Filemaker is up to version 11 as of this writing although keep in mind the big jump was version 6 to version 7-- all the new versions since then have been paper thin updates, with just the barest of new functions parading under the disguise of a full version upgrades. FM should be at about version 8.6 at this point, not Version 11. However, Filemaker fans will shell out $250 for almost any new feature for this program, regardless of real value. Me too. Still this book is worth having. If the author updates this book, I want to be his first customer.

I've been an advocate of FileMaker since version 2.1 back in 1994. I've read the books, watched the videos, and practiced to create better databases. The Book of FileMaker 6 is probably the most complete reference I've read to date. The chapters are arranged in progression starting at the very beginning with "What is a database?". Don't let that fool you into thinking this is a beginner's tome. The latter chapters will test your true knowledge of FileMaker. If you are an experienced user feel free to skip over the early part of the book. But I wouldn't, as it is chocked full of tidbits and quips that correct any misconceptions or misinformation you may have acquired previously. I like the fact that the FileMaker application and The Book of FileMaker 6 covers both platforms. I'm a Mac user, but have to create databases that run seamlessly on Windows.
Through the course of The Book of FileMaker 6, and its accompaning CD, you are guided through creating a sample business database. Step-by-step instructions for the novice explain the basics of field definitions, setup, layout, creating records, entering data, and creating and printing reports. As you progress the chapters get more involved and demonstrate the powerful relationships created with FileMaker and how you can use that to your advantage. Jump in where you feel comfortable, you can't help but better your FileMaker skills. The CD contains hundreds of royalty free examples and tutorials that follow the book. The author encourages you to use them, change them, make money off of the them. He wants you to suceed!. The CD is organized so that each chapter of the book has a matching folder of additional information on the CD. You can read, learn and follow along at the same time. The book finishes with chapters on using FileMaker on the Internet with FileMaker Server, going portable with FileMaker Mobile and incorporating FileMaker with other external software.
I was particularly interested in the chapters on using FileMaker Server and learning more about how to use XML, ActiveX and AppleScript. The Book goes a long way toward aiding that understanding. Now I have to put to use what I've learned.
The authors writing style is comfortable in that you can grasp the meaning of the ideas without feeling like you are buried reading an instruction manual.
