Shaking the Dependency Tree
Blog and Resource
An absolutely must read article on how the dependency tree in FileMaker works. FileMaker Pro has a very powerful calculation engine built into it. The calculation engine is exposed to us in a number of ways: calculation fields, script steps, conditional formatting, filtered portals, web viewers, chart objects, etc. But it can be a challenge to determine precisely when various kinds of calculations will refresh, and what causes them to refresh.
FileMaker Web Site and Resource
I love this link. It shows all the versions of FileMaker and the features that were released with that version. Helps when you are trying to determine if a feature is supported in FileMaker 12 but you can only run FileMaker 17 on your computer.
