"I just wanted to let you know that I've managed to replicate the steps you showed me in FileMaker on my organisation's database and have managed to get my invoicing layouts to work perfectly. Thank you very much! I've also been able to use some of the other things you showed me to good effect too so the course has already helped enormously. Just thought you should know :-)"
