Quick Tip:

Semi-Sorted
A database can either be sorted, unsorted or semi-sorted. The first two are pretty obvious, but it is less clear how a database becomes semi-sorted. A database becomes semi-sorted when a new record is added to a currently sorted database and the option to keep records sorted is unchecked. It can also become semi-sorted if a record is edited -- but only if one of the fields used in the sort is edited. Deleting a record will not make a database semi-sorted.

FileMaker, Inc.
FileMaker, Inc. or FMI is a wholly owned subsidiary of Apple, Inc. It was once named Claris when it also sold MacWrite, MacPaint, Claris Emailer, ClarisWorks, etc. but changed it's name when it focused on FileMaker. FileMaker started out as a DOS application called Nutshell but was shaped into the powerhouse it is today by Claris and FMI.
