Anchor/Buoy

One of the biggest areas of confusion for FileMaker developers making the transition from FM6 and earlier to FM7/8 is The Relationships Graph. The Anchor/Buoy approach removes virtually all decision-making from graph design, restoring the simplicity of 6-style relationships without sacrificing the power of 7/8-style relationships.

Benefits include a deeper understanding of the FM7/8 relational model, as well as a dramatic increase in developer productivity. These files are in Zip format and will work equally well on the Mac or the PC.
