This… Continue reading Button Bar Segment FunAfficher la totalité du billet
  10. Recently we’ve discussed optimizing SQL queries in FileMaker, and had some fun with various SQL experiments. Today we’re going to explore some ways FileMaker can use ExecuteSQL and the While function to perform letter frequency and text pattern analysis on candidate words for the popular Wordle game. The list of words comes from https://github.com/tabatkins/wordle-list and… Continue reading Exploring Wordlespace with SQL and WhileAfficher la totalité du billet

(An example of where this might come in handy would be selection criteria for a report,… Continue reading Connecting Portals to JSON ArraysAfficher la totalité du billet
