What is CNS Query?
While we were developing CNS Audit, we created several internal helper functions for running queries against FileMaker® Pro databases. We needed the ability to Add Tables; Find, Add, and Update Records; match Table, Layout, and Field names to their internal IDs; and many other things. After a while, we took a step back and thought, “we could make a plug-in out of these helper functions.” CNS Query was born.
This plug-in provides you with many easy-to-use functions to work with your data from any calculation and without creating any extraneous relationships. You can add, remove, and update tables, fields, and records. Get or Set the value of any field by name. Extract information about fields like name, id, and type. Extract information about layouts like name, id, and what fields are on the layout. Check whether a field, layout, or table exists. List and concatenate information from one or more fields from any table without defining a relationship to that table. We have even provided a function for direct SQL access if you are fluent in SQL.
Not only can CNS Query work under FileMaker Pro, but you it also works on your FileMaker Server. The Server Edition can be installed on FileMaker Server to be used with Scheduled Scripts and/or FileMaker Server Advanced to be used with Web Publishing. For more information about the Server Edition of CNS Query, please see the ReadMe file included in the CNS Query Server Edition download.
So, if you are ready to have access to your data like never before, download CNS Query today and begin your adventure!
