FM Help on containers is not very useful; it assumes too much.  Any videos out there on Filemaker's container field that is not on Youtube (we are blocked from using Youtube).  Thanks.

Thanks, but that's one I've already tried unsuccessfully.

The VTC Online University video tutorials are excellent.  This "bundle" will teach you everything you ever wanted to know (and probaby more):

http://www.vtc.com/products/FileMaker-Pro-11-Beginner-Intermediate-Advanced-Bundle-Tutorials.htm

This is the UK link, so you may need to re-set the site to the US, but's it very easy to find your way around.  I found that it's cheaper and much better value to get a general annual subscription (which gives you access to ALL the tutorials on the site), rather than just purchasing access to one particular course.

If you follow the above link, you should be able to play a good few of the first videos in each section (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced) - you'll need to join up to view the rest.

I notice in the beginner course there is a section on working with container fields (these videos require membership).  If you don't want the bundle (or the annual membership), you can just go for the beginner course on it's own.

Thanks.  Viewed the first one at home this morning, but it was too basic.  I am looking for answers to a couple of questions that I've posted (using container vs. the web viewer for documents, etc.)
