Thank You Tim. Yes, That does help, I was trying to grid things and forget about float options.
Let me see what I can work out.
As for Filemaker, and as much as I have salivated for a Filemaker connection to RW over the years, I now think it would be great for local development, but less useful for real production use.
A Filemaker solution would require a FM host, which is not that common, then a copy of
Filemaker server, which has no upgrade path as of late, so that means buying every new version for every upgrade, and quite frankly FM is just slow. Great for local dev and data gathering organiztion and front-end schema, but less great for real world usage. Not to mention a ODBC connector, limited FM to SQL interaction, etc. So, as much as I still would like to play around with it, I’m a little conflicted on how I would use it. The Filemaker roadmap has been tragic over the years. FM should have had a free reader like Adobe Acrobat to drive adoption, and a paid version to do the dev, and should have got on-board with a direct SQL backend ability with no hassles. FM has been disappointing.
So, excited to see the MySQL version. It’ll just be easier to implement as all Apache hosts will have and MySQL options available and are included for free in most hosting plans.
Thank You for all your help, can’t wait to run the SQL version.
