The latest  version, Filemaker Server and Filemaker Pro 13 has a really nice web interface so no local Filemaker client is needed.  Spreadsheets are nice but they are still limited in data retrieval and report generation compared to a full functioning database; especially and SQL based database.

Not sure what you mean by a "modern replacement" for FileMaker Pro. I use FMP Advanced v. 12 for all sorts of databases, simple and complex. It is more intuitive than Access and truly cross-platform.

Hi List,

 

We've had to pry FileMaker Pro from one of our teachers hands recently.  He also used the program to organize the school's ski program.  Now I have to help him find a modern replacement for FileMaker Pro that can hold all the skiers names and data and allow him to organize groups and such and spit them out as reports.

 

Is there a simple online application that anyone would suggest that would do this?  We have very simple needs on this one.  

 

Thanks!
