Chapter 13. ODBC/JDBC Import and Export

Chapter 13. ODBC/JDBC Import and Export

ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) and JDBC (Java Database Connectivity) are application interfaces that give all databases that support it—which is most of the databases in use today—a common “language” for record sharing. FileMaker users with access to large corporate databases like Oracle can use ODBC or JDBC to access data. ODBC is also the method for importing database information from Microsoft Access. If you are using the Windows platform, information can go in the other direction, too. With ODBC as the translator, you can send FileMaker information directly to Microsoft Office applications, or make your FileMaker databases available to corporate and Web databases.
