Using the Web Viewer

No overview of FileMaker’s features would be complete without a discussion of the Web Viewer. First introduced in FileMaker Pro 8.5, the Web Viewer provides a way to display data from the Web on a FileMaker Pro layout. As long as an Internet connection exists, the data can be live, and the user can interact with it much as with a browser.

The Web Viewer does not replace a browser, but it does provide a very significant set of features to users of FileMaker Pro. Because the address used to set up the Web Viewer is a calculation, you can display a Web Viewer that presents a map of a customer location from your database. You can display a client web page containing contact information so that you do not have to continually update your Contact Management database with new telephone extensions and mail stops.
