Instead, switch to Find mode, tell FileMaker what you’re looking for, and the program finds it for you. This section explains how to use Find mode to search for a record or group of records, and how to edit your search if you don’t get the results you anticipated. ) You can get to Find mode in four ways: • From the Mode pop-up menu, choose Find. • Choose View→Find Mode. • In the Status toolbar, click Find. • Press Ctrl+F (c -F). The Mode pop-up menu and View menu indicate which mode you’re currently in.

Use Find mode to let FileMaker do the looking for you. You tell FileMaker what you’re looking for; when it’s done looking, FileMaker returns you to Browse mode and shows what it found. ) • In addition to using databases (viewing, finding, sorting, adding, and changing data), you can use FileMaker to build databases (in fact, that’s what most of this book is about). Layout mode is where you design the screens (called layouts in FileMaker parlance) that present your database information to best advantage.

It’s time for a little organized laziness: Instead of making new blank records and retyping all that stuff, just choose Records→Duplicate Record or press Ctrl+D (c D). FileMaker copies everything from the first record into a new one for you. Now you can edit just the information that needs to be changed—just be sure you don’t accidentally leave in the first person’s email address or phone number, lest a message or phone call get misdirected later. DELETING RECORDS Getting rid of a record you don’t need is a breeze.
