    ODBC is great--I've been linking filemaker projects to MySQL databases using the Actual drivers and it works like a charm.  But there appears to be no way to store or interoperate between mySQL blobs (or similar data types) and Filemaker container fields.  I checked with Actual and they said the incapacity is on the Filemaker side.  So, for projects in which I want to store media in the mysql database with everything else I'm stuck.
