Not an area I can help much in. Is this a windows 7 64 bit system? If so, it has two ODBC DSN widgits or so I am told, one is 64 bit and one 32. FileMaker needs the 32 bit widgit.
Yes that is where I have added the FileMaker ODBC to with successs by testing it. That is why I am confused as to why its doesn show up in ColdFusion.... unless the version of ColdFusion has to be 32bit.
