      How do I design a gateway with FM so that multi database programs can be accessed through this one gateway

          Thank you for your post.

           

          Can you be a little more specific what you are trying to accomplish?  I read this post as using FileMaker Pro to access external databases.  Will you be sending SQL commands?  Will this just be a shell for another program?

            Hi,

             

            Do you use the FM DB or an external DB like MySQL? In my case I use MySql as back end and FM as a front end. So you wouldn't be bind to filemaker if you want to exchange data with other programs. Otherwise you could use the ODBC driver for FM.
