ExecuteSQL Function- Day 10 of 12 Days of FileMaker 12 Web Series

Thursday, May 10th, marked Day Ten of FM Academy’s 12 Days of FileMaker 12 Web Series. ExecuteSQL Function, hosted by Greg Lane at Skeleton Key summary: FileMaker 12 adds a dozen new functions, including the much anticipated ExecuteSQL, some Location functions for iOS devices, new ID functions, a set that accompany the new container method, and others. FileMaker 12’s new ExecuteSQL function opens up the power and flexibility of the SQL query language to any FileMaker calculation. This webinar presented techniques for using the ExecuteSQL function within calculations to gather and manipulate data for reports, charts, dashboards, and more. We used a variety of built-in and custom functions to slice and dice data in any context. We also covered the basics of the SQL SELECT statement so anyone can get started quickly. If you missed the Webinar, and would like to watch these examples of the new ExecuteSQL Function, the video is available on FileMaker Academy’s YouTube Channel.
