The new FileMaker Pro 10

Along with enjoying the new design and interface of FileMaker Pro 10, users of FileMaker 10 Starter Bundles can now save a series of searches and perform them in one click. For example, if you want to create a find request for customers in California who have spent more than $1,000 in the past year, but have not ordered in the last three months, FileMaker Pro 10 will save the search so you can access it over and over again in the future.

FileMaker Pro 10 also introduces Script Triggers, allowing both users and developers new options for automating tasks and boosting productivity. Now you can specify that a FileMaker Script (similar to a spreadsheet macro) will run based on timing or whenever users take a specified action in Browse Mode or Find Mode, such as clicking in a field or exiting a viewing mode. FileMaker Pro comes with 12 ready-to-use Script Triggers (five object-based and seven layout-based).

One of the most popular uses of databases is to create reports. With FileMaker Pro 10, you can now create beautiful reports — simple or sophisticated — that are based on your data. And, unique only to FileMaker Pro 10, you can actually make changes directly to the underlying data from within your report "on-the-fly" as you work. Any changes you may make to the data within your report will also show up immediately in the database, without ever having to switch views!

Other new FileMaker Pro 10 features include:

  • Enhanced Quick Start Screen — Get going quickly with the new "See it, Use it, Learn it" interface to start learning how to use FileMaker Pro. Plus easily create databases from existing data sources like .CSV, Tab, and also now from Excel 2007 (.xlsx) or Bento 2.
  • Enhanced SQL support — Now you can display, access and use data from even more SQL sources, including SQL tables in Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Oracle 11g and MySQL 5.1 community edition.
  • Send Mail via SMTP — Save time by sending e-mail directly from FileMaker Pro instead of having to open your e-mail client.
