      Trying to connect to Macintosh addressbook

      Post

      I am running Filemaker Pro 11.
      I am trying to connect to the AddressBook database (/users/_user_name/Library/ApplicationSupport/AddressBook/Addressbook-v22.abcddb
      This is a SQLite3 file. I can view the tables using SQLite3 or SQLiteManager
      I set up a System DSN to the file using the Actual Technologies driver.
      In Filemaker
      I select the menu File-Manage-External Sources
      I select ODBC for type and the DSN I just created (it will not locate or load "local" DSNs)
      I provide my username and password (admin level)
      I specify a table and "filter by type"
      I select the menu File-Manage-Database
      I select the Relationships Tab
      I push the add table button
      Select the new connection
      Error dialog comes up "The ODBC data source you have selected is not supported."
      Any ideas?
