FMT Staff Note: IF you would like any of Kevin's tip or techniques incorprated into a solution or project contact him at his website below.

Hello and welcome. I’m Kevin Frank, and I’ve been using FileMaker Pro since the late ’80s… professionally since 1995. The expression “hack” has both positive and negative connotations. Here it is defined as “a tip, trick or technique that helps you solve a problem,” and the best hacks are the ones that can be re-used and modified to meet a variety of challenges. Or, put another way, as I read recently in Street Fighting Mathematics, “A tool is a trick I use twice.”

Kevin Frank and Associates provides custom FileMaker database solutions for business, government, education and non-profit clients. With over 20 years experience, we are certified FileMaker Developers with a solid reputation for high quality results. We invite you to call us today for a no-charge, no-obligation phone consultation.
