If you are a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you're watching this tutorial on a DVD, you will have access to the Exercise Files used throughout this title, and in this title we'll be creating an invoicing file from scratch. In the first part of the title, you'll be building the file along with each movie in the order that a database should be built. In later movies, we'll use that same file to add more specific features and data to our Exercise Files. If you want to just jump to a specific movie, you can find this specific exercise file that corresponds with it. The way that the exercise files are laid out is that they all come in one folder, as you see here, and each folder is broken into different chapters; for example, if you're watching the movie in chapter 1, movie number 4, you can just click on the subfolder, and then double-click on the exercise file.
Each of the movies has its own dedicated FileMaker file, so you can start from any point in the title. If you're a monthly subscriber or an annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch on your own files, and this lesson works quite well if you're creating your own files. So let's go ahead and get started.
