Hello Cherie and Everyone!
That is great. Thank you. But you will need FileMaker 7, or 8 or 8.5  
to run SignBank 8. It will not open in any version before FileMaker  
7. And SignBank 8 is not on the web yet, because it is not ready yet.

SignBank has several databases that work side by side. Each database  
works differently than the other database because each database has a  
different purpose....So we need to start with one database and learn  
it, and then go on to the next one and learn it, and so forth...

The manuals are out of date and have to be re-written, so maybe we  
should wait until I have those done, so you won't feel so frustrated  
as before. I am afraid it may take me the month of August to complete  
the manuals...

It will also take me the month of August to get donated copies of  
FileMaker for people...

I want to complete your one story Jack and Jill with the long credits  
and ASL poetry explanation, and make our first PDF from the Document  
Maker, and then share it with you.

So September is going to be the exciting month, but August is just  
catching up with so many projects half finished ;-)

Congrats on getting a new computer! What kind did you get?

And I hope your new school year is going well...

Val ;-)
