Stop Embedding Documents in Your Database!

Stop Embedding Documents in Your Database! | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

Recently, I converted two customer databases from FileMaker 11 to FileMaker 12.

Both customers were embedding documents in the database by inserting them into container fields.

The result in each case was database bloat—a file size much larger than necessary (1GB or greater).

 

The disadvantages of a large database in FileMaker are several including slower performance (more data to push over network), lower productivity (long wait times during backups), and greater risk (more susceptible to corruption in the event of a crash).

Fortunately, FileMaker 12 has a new feature called Enhanced (or external) Container Fields to address this.

Six steps to turn your designing into a business – Hypergrid Business

Six steps to turn your designing into a business – Hypergrid Business | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

(one of the steps can be to use a Filemaker database to "Get your books in order" )

...

 

I, personally, use Filemaker. I was a database designer in a previous life, and my solution to everything is to create a new relational database.

Filemaker happens to be the one I love.

I use it for everything. For example, I have a table for all my articles. Associated with each article record is a separate table with full interview transcripts.

That’s linked to a table of sources. That, in turn, is linked to a table of companies.

So with a click, I can see who I know at IBM, what stories I interviewed them for and when, and what they said.

And I can search across all the thousands of transcripts on file. Similarly, I track all invoices, all freelancers, all expenses, and Filemaker also lets me add in attachments — invoices, contracts, photographs, story documents, research reports and anything else that comes in electronic form.

If you have database design expertise, you can design a system that works the way you work, and automate all your most common tasks for you.

Real-World FileMaker Web Service App

Real-World FileMaker Web Service App | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

In this article I’m going to move from general enthusiasm to showing a FileMaker Pro database that I built to import book information based on ISBN values (a link to my demo file appears below).

The power of “Insert from URL” grows exponentially when combined with the FMP URL protocol and FileMaker Go.

In a fairly short amount of time I was able to integrate my iPhone to scan a book’s ISBN bar code from within FileMaker Go–reading the data using an app called Pic2shop, then using “Insert from URL” to load the rest of the book information, virtually eliminating any manual data entry.

 

The reason I chose books for my example is that it combines two passions of mine: books and FileMaker.
