Hi Experts,

I was just wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to connect to a Filemaker database on a local server using Visual Studio? I have been trying to find a way, but it does not seem to be possible!

Thanks for any help

You can use the ODBC sharing and use the filemaker database as an ODBC source for yr visual studio app.

Thanks - I thought I'd seen it somewhere....! Got to fiddle around until I get it working now.

Thanks again,
Daniel
