Describing your FileMaker problem and finding a solution

When you’re trying to solve a problem within FileMaker Pro, it’s not always obvious how you should start. In fact, until you’ve dealt with a variety of solutions to a variety of common problems, it’s hard to arrive at the solution which even solves the problem in the first place.

In this video, I walk through a FileMaker Pro file which has a very common problem. How do I find conflicting records and indicate which ones they are? Well, using FileMaker relationships and filtering the data based on those relationships we can arrive at a solution to the problem and even learn how to solve more problems because of the approach we take.

The first thing you need to do with any problem is describe the problem correctly. If you’re interested in learning about FileMaker Pro relationships then there’s certainly some great content within this video!
