Thank you all for visiting the blog after my brief absence during the Thanksgiving holiday. I hope that you and your family had an enjoyable visit and that you all are eagerly anticipating the winter holiday season. Now that I have returned to State College, PA and the Pennsylvania State University, I can continue organizing of electronic database. I had initially entered data into a FileMaker Pro 10 database using the default templates. This made data entry easy, but was very cumbersome when retrieving data of interest. I therefore designed a template that used tabs to organize like metadata. To the right are screen captures of the tab pages as they appear in the database.
