When developing in a Filemaker environment, it is good to know what the limits are, although the limits are often wide enough to meet your needs. Although these limits are very wide, be careful to use these limits at the optimal level in practice. Note that Filemaker Pro 19 technical limits may vary depending on the disk space of the device used, the available memory and the way the solution was created.
