New Calculation Functions – Day 9 of 12 Days of FileMaker 12 Web Series

Tuesday, May 8th, marked Day Nine of FM Academy’s 12 Days of FileMaker 12 Web Series. New Calculation Functions, hosted by MightyData 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. Functions are part of the building blocks of FileMaker calculations. Many of the new enhancements in FileMaker 12 may require scripting changes, or open possibilities for information and action based on what these functions provide. While the ExecuteSQL may draw a great deal of attention from developers, we need to be aware of these other functions, their purpose, and how to integrate them into our solutions. If you missed the Webinar, and would like to watch these examples of the new Calculation Functions, the video is available on FileMaker Academy’s YouTube Channel. Day Ten of the web series is Thursday, May 10th, 2pm – 3pm (EST), hosted by Greg Lane at Skeleton Key. The topic: ExecuteSQL Function. Register today.
