Using InspectorPro 5 with FileMaker Pro Advanced 14

FileMaker 14 is here, and while the Database Design Report (DDR) hasn’t changed, here’s a “Getting Started’ walkthrough for using InspectorPro with the latest version of FileMaker Pro Advanced.

To  generate a DDR, go into your FileMaker solution and select ‘Database Design Report’ under ‘Tools’.

Generating DDR 1
Select the ‘XML’ report format, and uncheck the ‘Automatically open report when done’ checkbox.

Generating DDR 2

Now open up InspectorPro 5 and on the top left hit the green ‘+’ arrow next to solutions and give it a name.

Import DDR 1

On the top right hit the green arrow to import your DDR, give the analysis a name and hit import.

Importing a DDR 2

Select ‘Summary.xml’ and hit insert, InspectorPro will begin parsing your DDR.

Improt DDR 3

After this completes, you’re ready to start analyzing your system!
