Foxpro developer. Looking at FileMaker
I am confused about all the different packages.
I have a client with 6 employees and has a windows server 2003. Wants me to develop a small program that taps into a payroll app that uses DBFs, displays data to the user, lets them edit and do some calculations and then export the data as Excel.
What I need is the ability to 1) Make an executable to redistribute without the client having to pay runtimes. 2) Connect to MySQL or other ODBC. 3) Able to import/export XML. 3) Ability to access over the Intranet so i dont install this on every workstation.
Which Filemaker do I need and do i need additional add ons?
You can have run times or ODBC connectivity but not both.
Quoting from Filemaker's help system:
ODBC import, the Execute SQL script step, and using ODBC data sources in the relationships graph are not supported in runtime application.
