About FileMaker's ODBC/JDBC Functions

Using SQL, FileMaker can interact with an ODBC/JDBC data source. That doesn't make FileMaker an SQL database. In fact, although FileMaker version 7 is much more supportive of ODBC/JDBC standards than any version before it, it is still a step or two away from being able to interact transparently with other ODBC/JDBC-compliant programs. FileMaker doesn't support the full range of SQL queries, and it ships with a very small selection of ODBC drivers. It supports text and Oracle and SQL Server queries in both Windows and the Mac, but at press time, only on the Windows platform can information flow both ways.
