Title

reccommendation for external data sources

Post

Hey guys,

 

I'm trying use my hosted FileMaker Database as a data sourcebut I only have FileMaker server 9, not advanced. I'm using FileMaker 9 pro advanced. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to what method/technology they use to make this happen. Looks like I'm limited to these options: 

 

1)  Using FileMaker Pro, I want to submit SQL queries or statements to an ODBC data source.

 

2)  Using an ODBC client running on a local client, I want to submit SQL queries or statements to a FileMaker Pro database.

 

Any thoughts guys? Also, how much does the upgrade from FileMaker server 9 to either FMServer 9 Advanced or FMServer 10 advanced? 

 

Thanks!

 

Josh
