Summary

In this hour, you saw how to use ODBC to import data into FileMaker databases. ODBC allows you to directly control another database instead of using the two-stage export/import process described previously. Because FileMaker ships with drivers for SQL Server and Oracle (two of the most widely used databases in the corporate world), you can interact with many large-scale databases in your organization while preserving your ability to quickly implement FileMaker solutions.

The process of using ODBC is simple: You set up data sources (once), and then you import records into FileMaker dynamically selecting the data and conditions you want to apply to the data.
