FileMaker Extra: Installing and Troubleshooting the ODBC Client Driver

The DataDirect ODBC driver that's used to connect to FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Developer, or FileMaker Server 7 Advanced is not installed during the regular FileMaker installation process. It requires a separate installation.

Remember that FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Developer can act as xDBC hosts only for client applications running on the same computer. If you want to use Microsoft Excel, for example, to connect to a database hosted by FileMaker Pro, then the ODBC client driver needs to be installed on the same computer as that on which FileMaker Pro is installed.
