With the WordConnector Plug-in now finally I am able to generate complex FileMaker forms as MS-Word documents!
After all, this is a standard
feature in many Windows
database applications,
allowing my users to design
their own layouts freely and
easily.
A unique feature and a
valuable selling point!
The same is true for the
MS-Word text analysis
functions, they are just what
my text-working clients need.
The multitude of other
functions rounds off this
Plug-in, making it an
indispensable element
in my FileMaker solution.
