Greg Lane, Skeleton Key, hosted FM Academy’s tenth webinar in the 12 Days of FileMaker 12 series, on May 10th.

The topic – ExecuteSQL:

FileMaker 12 adds a dozen new functions, including the much anticipated ExecuteSQL, some Location functions for iOS devices, new ID functions, a set that accompany the new container method, and others.

FileMaker 12’s new ExecuteSQL function opens up the power and flexibility of the SQL query language to any FileMaker calculation. This webinar presented techniques for using the ExecuteSQL function, within calculations to gather and manipulate data for reports, charts, dashboards, and more. We used a variety of built-in and custom functions to slice and dice data in a variety of context. We also covered the basics of the SQL SELECT statement to help anyone get started quickly.
