I have been using FileMaker Pro for several years. This is a useful program because you can create your own database to store important information for you. This movie is a very brief introduction to the concept of databases. It is really just to show people what a FileMaker Pro database is like.
Further movies will explain some of the detail of how to use and create your own databases. In simple terms a database is a structured way of recording information. The easiest way to get started building your own database is to sketch out the information you want to record. it is always a good idea to start with the end in mind.
