FileMaker Pro 3.0 for Windows 95


Copyright (c) 1997 Sage Periodicals Press

Abstract: FileMaker Pro 3.0, the newest version of Claris''s popular database, brings relational properties to a previously flat file system. This review describes the features of the new database, examining its strengths and weaknesses. FileMaker is known for its ease of use, its flexibility, and its cross-platform performance, but its weak searching capabilities make it less than ideal for typical library information needs. However, it is an excellent program for projects within the library requiring a database, but without the need for complex searching.
