This product is a good product. Filemaker is owned by Apple so It like other Apple products, expensive. The draw backs is networking. You have to have Filemaker on each computer. The Great things about filemaker is it will run on Windows, Mac, Ipad, Itouch and Iphone. You have to have Filemaker Go for the Ipad, Itouch, and Iphone and currently Go is Free. 12 is a big upgrade from previous Filemaker Products, so you can't run it with previous versions. You have to upgrade all computers. This product is on the right track, if they would just make it more cost effective for small business / small Network users then it would be a 10 star.

I have owned or worked with FileMaker Pro 6, 8, 9 and now 12 for over 10 years. It's nice program with a lot of flexibility and power. Compared to older versions, using the likes of Inspector, which is also present in 11, makes making layouts a breeze.

If you are using Lion or Mountain Lion for Mac, any version older than 11 would not work on your computer. It is important to note that database for 12 is not compatible with 11 or older. For many people, it may make sense to stay with 11 for a while longer in order to be able to exchange information with other people still using older versions of FileMaker.

In my opinion, there now may be one clear reason for preferring 12 over 11 - Retina Display MacBooks. With Mountain Lion as OS (but apparently not Lion), FileMaker Pro 12 gives crystal clear texts. I don't think this is true for 11.

I'm only giving 4 stars because of some bugs that interfere with my use (see a long list of known bugs in various versions of FileMaker at [...] ) as well as lack of a stronger finder function - something that would temporarily or optionally highlight search terms found in the database.

The newest version of FileMaker was released in April 2012 after nearly 2 years in the making. With it has come a slew of new features and many things that the FileMaker world has waited for with anticipation. Here are 12 ways FileMaker 12 will affect you and your business:

1. FileMaker 12 is a major release. Along with it comes a new database file format change...the first since FileMaker 7. Although conversion of your existing files will be fairly painless, there must be testing and planning in the upgrade of this software. If you haven't yet converted old databases from FileMaker 5 format, you've got two file format conversions to do to get up-to-date. If you remember the migration from .fp5 to .fp7 as being painful and expensive, the migration from .pf7 to .fp12 will be nothing like that. FileMaker 12 is a release that builds the infrastructure possible for even more future innovation.
2. You must upgrade your FileMaker server, clients, and databases all at the same time. Everyone will need to be running FileMaker 12 to access your updated databases. No more mixing and matching of server and client 9, 10, and 11. There may also be increased system requirements. For example, FileMaker 12 will not run on any older PowerPC based Macintoshes anymore. You may need to upgrade your operating system to a more recent version before you can install FileMaker 12.
System Requirements for FileMaker client:
Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard, and 10.7 Lion (Leopard and PPC no longer supported on the Mac OS.)
Windows XP SP3, Vista SP2, and Windows 7
3. If you run any plug-ins or other software that integrates with FileMaker, you'll want to wait until new versions are released that are fully compatible and tested with FileMaker 12.

I have used Filemaker for many years, and it's the easiest database software to use. I have several databases, large and small, on Filemaker, and I wouldn't be without it. Filemaker 12 continues the tradition of excellent products.

This is by far the best program with which to build your relational database apps. Very strong scripting makes this really versatile. I have been working for years with an older version and had to upgrade because of the rich variety of new features. What it really needs is a comprehensive training manual.

Have used several versions of FilemakerPro for fifteen years. It just keeps getting better.
Has functioned great for my historical research in tracking thousands of records and easy
searches for data needed for a specific article.

I purcased this version as an upgrade to FileMaker Pro 7, which I had been using successfully for several years on both MAC and Windows platforms. I upgraded because I had a need for one of the newer features - the ability to save layouts and reports in PDF format. This newer version is a nice refinement on my older version, all of the "old" features are there in a similarform & format so the amount of relearning to use previous features was minimal. If you using FileMaker Pro to build your first data base, the training tutorials are an excellent tool. I wish such a tool was available when I first started to use FileMaker Pro (version 3!).

Been using FileMaker for work for years. It is easy to use for ANYONE. If you have never made a database, you can learn how to start in 10 minutes. It is intuitive. However, even though it is easy, it is also a robust database that can be used for nearly any size or complex database system.
