Advanced Scripting

Familiarity with FileMaker's lengthy list of script steps is a great foundation, but putting together a workable script takes practice. Although some scripts are simple five-line affairs, sometimes a script requires a lot of forethought, planning, and organization. FileMaker gives you tools to help you write scripts and to troubleshoot them when they aren't working. Plus, you can organize and document your work as you go. In this chapter you'll pull these concepts together to learn how to write and manage complex scripts.
