Hi Troy,
I haven't thought this through completely, but it might be faster to  
develop and maybe have more use depending on how you use the Filemaker  
interface, to build dynamic match lists in filemaker that then are  
carried over to php. For instance, it's not that hard to build a  
similar items kind of list based on known criteria in filemaker that  
could be part of your entry screen so you would build in a kind of  
navigation tool that does some proactive error checking on data entry.
