Sample text

In your FileMaker career, you'll often use the Find command to locate the records you want to act upon before you tell FileMaker what to do with them. All records. In some cases, you may want to delete all the records in a database. Maybe your friend wants an empty copy of your database for his own use. Or perhaps your database holds data you just don't need anymore, like test results you're 46 about to reproduce. Complete record elimination is easily accomplished by way of two menu commands: Just choose Records Show All Records, then choose Records Delete All Records.

But if you realize you misspelled your search term or were a little too specific in describing what you wanted, click Modify Find. FileMaker sends you back to Find mode, where you can edit your 53 request and click Find again. After you perform a find, FileMaker displays the set of records that matched your find request (in this case, all the records with the last name Spinnet). You can see how many records you found by looking at the count in the Status area, as shown in Figure 1-13. Although you're in Browse mode, you can't look through every record in the databasejust the ones FileMaker found.

Whether your database contains information about individual persons, objects, pictures, dung beetles, or whatever, FileMaker always thinks of that information in individual chunks called records. Each record contains everything the database knows about that person, thing, insect, or whatever. Now, because you need to store many smaller pieces of information in each record (like a person's phone number, address, birthday, and so on), FileMaker can bestow each record with an almost infinite number of fieldsthe specific bits of data that define each record and make it unique.
