Inspector for FileMaker
, its comprehensive database analysis tool. Inspector 1.0 determines and provides information for developers to solutions, execute maintenance and keep solutions problem free. Inspector analyzes the metadata of FileMaker solutions, clarifying the structure, elements, relationships and other detailed information, and highlighting problems in troubled areas. Using FileMaker's Database Design Report, Inspector provides a visual overview of basetables, table occurrences, layouts, layout objects, scripts, fields, privilege sets and more. Inspector provides search capabilities such as the ability to search within any calculation for any element, field, text, function, custom function, plug-in function, table occurrence or literal string. Security Perspective provides a visual presentation of elements in security-impacted areas, such as basetables, layouts, layout objects, scripts, script steps, and value lists. Comparison Checking shows what's been changed, and how it's been changed, between multiple analyses. Inspector 1.0 requires FileMaker Pro 8 Advanced, and runs on Mac OS X, Windows XP, and Windows 2000 and is available for $400.
