Quick Tip:

Searching Higher ASCII
If you look at the storage options for a field in Manage Database, and you see that it is set to a particular language, you may not think much about what it can do for you. Try changing the language to Unicode. This will make FileMaker index include upper ASCII characters, so you can search for values without enclosing them in quotes. For example, you will be able to search for an email address by including the at sign (@).

Fun Stuff:

The Wedge
Claris Corporation and the FileMaker, Inc. have been housed in a building called the wedge in Santa Clara, California since they spun off from Apple, Inc. The building is nicknamed the wedge because it looks like a wedge. For some years they had an adjacent building called the interstitial but it was let go when the company downsized to focus on FileMaker products.
