Combining both power and simplicity, FileMaker Pro 9 gives you the tools you need to connect to the world of data! This exciting new version has ten great reasons to upgrade to FileMaker Pro 9.
New! Connect to Your FileMaker Data
On your mark, get set, connect!
Connect directly to the information you need every time you launch FileMaker Pro 9 with the new FileMaker Quick Start Screen. Whether you want to create a new database, open an existing database or learn more about using FileMaker Pro 9, you’ll get to where you need to go faster than ever.
Connect to changes in your FileMaker Pro 9 data by visually formatting fields and objects based on parameters that you decide! New Conditional Formatting can be applied to fields, FileMaker Web Viewer objects, text objects, or text based buttons. Choose from a list of pre-defined conditions or create your own with a calculation for enhanced reporting. For example, you can now set future due dates to green and past due dates to red and bold.
Database sharing made even easier
In just a few minutes, you can be sharing your database with others 1. Just click on Send Link and FileMaker Pro will create an email with a simple hyperlink that when clicked on, will open your database. You can edit the email in your email client to add any additional instructions or information about your database for your users making it easier than ever for your users to connect to your database.
Whether you want to create an invoice to send to a customer or publish a report to your team, FileMaker Pro 9 makes it easy to create an Adobe PDF from your FileMaker data directly within FileMaker using PDF Maker, a feature introduced in FileMaker Pro 8. Now, with the new Append to PDF feature, you can combine multiple reports into one PDF and email the PDF to the recipients you specify, connecting them to the latest information.
Stay current with the latest software with new Software Update Notification. FileMaker Pro 9 automatically checks for software updates weekly. All it takes is an Internet connection.
New! Connect to Your SQL Data
Easy SQL reporting
Imagine that you could connect to your organization’s SQL Server, Oracle and mySQL databases from one place and use the information without having to do any programming. Now you can! FileMaker Pro 9 creates secure easy one-way or two-way connections to External SQL Data Sources. The coolest thing about it? The SQL data acts just like FileMaker data. Create custom reports, add calculations and other fields, build relationships with existing FileMaker data – just using the easy-to-use tools of FileMaker Pro.
New! Connect to Your Creativity
Super script organizing
The more scripts you add to automate your solution, the more important it is to stay organized. That’s why you’ll appreciate how easy FileMaker Pro 9 makes it to group and edit your scripts with the new Script Grouping and Editing Tools.
Creativity at your fingertips
Connect to your creativity! Now you can design better and more creative layouts with intuitive new layout object tools. Modify the tab sizes with the new Tab Control options. Add a status bar or display HTML content stored in your database with the new FileMaker Web Viewer options.
One size fits all
Design it once. Use it anywhere. Layout objects, such as portals, tab controls, and the FileMaker Web Viewer, will scale to fit the screen or printer being used. With the new Auto-Resize feature, layout objects that you choose will resize or move in order to maintain a constant distance to the sides of the window or container that they have been anchored to.
