Create a FileMaker Calendar


Quick Tip:

Page Count
The new {{PageCount}} symbol in FileMaker Pro 19 allows you to place the total page count on a multiple page document. In previous versions, only the {{PageNumber}} symbol was available. Now you can produce results like "Page 2 of 10" without using a script. The {{PageCount}} also has a function counterpart called Get(PageCount) you can use inside a calculation formula to produce conditional results on the last page of a report.

Fun Stuff:

Dull Boy
FileMaker files were stored in clear text prior to FileMaker 7 so, if you opened a FileMaker file in a text editor, you could see the phrase "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" in the header repeated over and over. No, it's not a virus! My understanding is the developers just needed to take up some space in the header and that's what they came up with. Today, modern FileMaker files are stored in Unicode so I'm not sure if the phrase is still there.
