I have a small business that is currently running quite inefficiently. The tool that we use to house client information, task detail, and financials is in 2 crude Excel spreadsheets. One spreadsheet houses job specific info utilizing drop-down lists and such and the other is just a running tally in list view of all the jobs booked for the entire year. And you guessed it--the 2 spreadsheets are maintained and updated INDEPENDENTLY thus causing inefficient work flow because the info is basically the same on both sheets (one is more or a summary while the other is in great detail).
I was searching the net for a DB solution and I truly believe a Filemaker DB could be my answer. From what I have seen, a FM DB could be customized to do exactly what I need it to do and cut down the manual data entry in half. I am sure I could teach myself how to build an adequate DB, but I don't really have the time to learn from ground up. Thus, I am reaching out to this forum for help!! I anticipate this being a pretty straightforward design over a couple/few hours.
Is anyone interested in helping out my little 'ole business with this request? Please respond. Thank you for your time.
Given my Filemaker experience, I think I can help with this project, but analyzing samples of your excel files would be really useful to make a correct bid. Best regards Alessandro Barattieri

EXCEL files need to consider so that we can provide an adequate budget. You need the information in a single file and properly organized. FileMaker is the ideal tool.
