    Does anyone have any feedback on Filemaker Pro please?

    Have you used it? Easy to use? Worth the money?

    It’s listed among the top five desktop database softwares when you do a database software search but I haven’t found much by way of endorsements

    Thanks everyone

    Hello there, I haven’t used it beyond a 30 minute mess around several years back and I found it very simplistic (which I’m sure is great for some things). Like anything software development/IT, the correct answer can be given after knowing what you are using it for. Personally, I would suggest there are probably better choices. Are you wanting it for it’s front end capabilities or back end?

    I do know a guy who knows a guy who thinks it’s the greatest :)

    At the risk of sounding anal…You’ll only get biased answers with shaded responses that way. You are probably best off not asking :)

    For example;
    Easy to use: Is subjective to what you are trying to achieve. I dare say it’s easy for having a simple one table form (from memory it is coupled to the DB table). Not so easy for a double entry accounting system.

    Worth the money: Again, might be worth the money to an sales guy who likes to dabble in making their IT/db guys life difficult. For the IT/db guy it wouldn’t be :)

    The larger portion of the cost pie is in labour/knowledge transfer anyway.
