The Filemaker Pro is the best program that I've used. It works for an expanding school population, can segregate billing and stats for dojo management tasks, and is pretty user friendly. I'd never considered
writing my own program, that's beyond my pail, as it were.
Cool Beans Jenn...
You can also make Filemaker Pro data web accessible too.... and for those who would like students to be able to pay online you can plug in a safe and secure Paypal account for your Dojo.
Anyone who is good with a computer can use Filemaker Pro after a few hours of instruction. It's very user friendly.
Thanks for sharing, and I hope you're enjoying the surf today.
