Chapter 17. Exchanging Data > Importing ODBC Data into FileMaker

Importing ODBC Data into FileMaker

FileMaker’s ODBC capabilities create a two-way street: ODBC-based applications can read FileMaker data, but you also can use FileMaker’s simpler interface to tap corporate databases created by such programs as Oracle.

Importing the data involves three distinct procedures: (1) using the ODBC control panel to specify the name and location of the ODBC source data, (2) connecting to the source data from within FileMaker, and (3) building a database query within FileMaker.
