In FileMaker, there are lesser known named constants that are part of the list of reserved words. In computer programming, a constant is a value that does not change and cannot be altered. When assigned an identifier, or name, the value can be referenced as a "named constant" interchangeably with the value itself.
In FileMaker, internal "Field IDs" are assigned to each field that you create. You never see this internal ID, but this is how FileMaker knows what field to reference in layouts and scripts. Learn how to manage them across deployment environments.
