Title

ODBC access to database on FileMaker Server via FileMaker Pro

Post


     We have a number of users currently using local FileMaker Pro installations and accessing those databases through ODBC from other applications on their PCs. Because we soon need muliple users sharing databases, we are now setting up a FileMaker Server to host those databases. However, when we began the project, there was no mention of using ODBC access to FileMaker, so we have only File Maker Server, not FileMaker Server Advanced.

     In this scenario, can users continue to use their local FileMkaer Pro installation and ODBC driver to access the database that has been moved to the server, or are we forced to upgrade to FileMaker Server Advanced and point the ODBC setup on the PCs to point directly to the server.
