Can someone please help me, or offer me some ideas?
Thank you for your post.
There is a lot of information about this on our web site. I would first look at:
You would just add the MySQL database as an external sequel source, place the fields on your layout, and update it live (depending on permissions).
If you need additional information, please contact me.
how do I do the update live?
I think this might be an issue of permissions in the mysql database. Whenever I do an add new record in filemaker it is not doing an insert in the mysql table. What all permissions do I need to have on in the mysql database?
