South Bend, IN / Temecula, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2005 -- Excelisys is excited to announce two new and free download additions to their free FileMaker 7 Tips and Tricks section of their website.

Exclisys Inc. announces two new demo files and white papers, along with updated versions of two previous demo files, available for free from our web site at:


New Demos:

Hierarchical Portals
Presented at the FileMaker Developer's Conference, this technique enables the display of portal records hierarchically. Users can easily create, edit, delete and move records from one "folder" to another, as well as collapsing and expanding folders dynamically.

This elegant approach can be modified to balance the number of hierarchical "levels" vs. the number of records, such as fourteen levels and one million records or eleven levels and 100 million records.

A white paper documents this technique step by step.

Calendar Navigator
This demo and white paper walks the user through creating a calendar
navigator. Using FileMaker 7's new features, it allows the user to change the text and graphics on the fly, and even supports selection of non-contiguous dates.

Updated Demos:

Be sure to check out updated versions of the Recursive Calculations and Audit Log demo files as well.

Recursive Calculations
- Minor bug fixes

Audit Log
- Support for repeating fields
- Use of text formatting to make the log easier to read
