FileMaker custom functions resource point

Dear users!

We'd like to thank our users for continuing to contribute their filemaker custom functions to the community since it's inception.

To help with authoring custom functions, our partners at have put together a handy little application for FileMaker called the FM Expression Editor – in their words it’s "the simple and smart way to edit FileMaker calculations". The application features syntax highlighting, intelligent content assistance, quick function look-up and database design report integration. These features combine to provide you with an environment that lets you write complex functions and calculations faster than ever before.
