An Introduction to FileMaker Pro is being offered in collaboration between the Division of Student Affairs and Center for Faculty development (CFD). Eric Matthews, systems analyst, certified FileMaker developer, and authorized FileMaker trainer for Student Affairs, will facilitate the sessions in IRC 210.

On Tuesday, March 8 from 9:30 to 11:30, the session will introduce the use of FileMaker Pro databases: browsing, finding, and sorting records; navigating layouts and views; entering, importing, printing and exporting data; how to start your own database; a quick overview of customizations that can facilitate a user's work; and resources for learning more about FileMaker Pro.

On Thursday, March 10 from 9:30 to 11:30, the session will introduce how to develop a database application: ways to create tables, fields, and relationships (joins); simplifying data entry; automating tasks with buttons and scripts; creating reports and charts; and sharing and protecting databases on a network.

This course may fill as quickly as it did the last last two time we offered it;
