      Using Filemaker to access MySql tables

      Post

      I know that Filemaker can connect to external databases such as MySQL, but I have not really worked with MySQL before and would love some help finding some great resources that walk you through setting up the MySQL server and then attaching the database.  So let me explain what I'm trying to accomplish.  We were previously using Docuware to serve up a web site that allows you to search for items and then it would display the documents.  We want to move this to a Filemaker Solution and have all the data including the .MYD files.  My thought is that I can setup a MySQL server on an XP machine attach the .MYD tables and then use filemaker to connect to the external tables and import the data.  Does anyone have any ideas on this and any sources you could refer me to for help on setting up the MySQL server and loading the tables?  Thanks in advance!
