Creating subsummary reports is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. However, getting percentages is not quite as straightforward. I present three examples in this file which cover fraction of total and GetSummary methods.
Shizolate Your Text Input
This file is based on the asksnoop.com website. Basically, the user enters a website and it appears on your screen as if Snoop Dogg were talking. It's a lot of fun to view your favorite website. Anyhow, I wrote a recursive custom function that mimics the asksnoop website but in FileMaker Pro. Don't download this file if you are easily offended!
Soduko Puzzles in FileMaker
For about 6 months I was addicted to Soduko and did at least one puzzle every day. Many times I considered creating a FileMaker version of Soduko but never got around to it. Thanks to Leland Long I can check another item off my list of to dos. BTW, Leland left the game completely unlocked so you can explore how he did it.
Tower of Hanoi Puzzle
This is a version of the classic Tower of Hanoi puzzle which was invented in 1883 by the French mathematician Édouard Lucas, or possibly by Harrison Heath who Lucas may have simply copied off of. Either way, its a classic puzzle game that has survived through the years. This solution is completely unlocked so you can see how it was done. I have played it and thoroughly enjoyed his interface! Thanks to Mark E. Mann for sharing this game with the FileMaker community.

Not only that, Scott presents the idea very well, so anyone should be able to replicate his technique. There's no reason you couldn't also use this technique for buttons as well.

Download the FileMaker commercial that Claris aired on national television in the summer of 1996. Make sure to turn the sound way up, since I had trouble hearing it.
