Quick Tip:

Global Naming
Most FileMaker developers begin the name their global fields with a "g" (i.e. gMyField). This differentiates global fields, at a glance, from regular fields. In addition, it groups global fields together, so they can then be more easily located in Manage Database and in other field listing dialogs. Unfortunately, this grouping places the global fields in the middle of an alphabetical listing. A better naming convention is to begin global field names with an "x", "z" or "zz" (my preference is "x"). This will group your global fields at the end of an alphabetical listing and differentiate them better from regular fields in a long list of fields (i.e. xMyField).
