You can use any database , which supports ODBC. This include Filemaker

I see in Filemaker under File/ODBC/JDBC Sharing Setting I can turn on OBBC/JDBC sharing but when I go to Crystal Reports I don't see where to connect CR to filemaker like I did with my old company's SQL
I can you tell the link I am looking for

You will need to create an ODBC connection through Windows then use that to connect with Crystal

IN Crystal you choose the ODBC connection then choose the connection you created.
