FileMaker Crash while managing ODBC external source


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OSX 10.5.8

Description of the issue

I am using the FMpro 11.0v2 demo version. I would like to use MySQL tables served from a Ubuntu server.

Manage Relationships shows the tables of a ODBC data source but then returns a
"ODBC Error: [MySQL][ODBC 5.1 Driver][mysqld-5.1.41-3ubuntu12.9]You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ''myodbcdatasource" at line 1

Trying again, selecting a database table (with '_') in the table name, crashes FileMaker Pro.

The ODBC data source tests correctly, i can select table content at will with SQL queries in other programs besides FM. A number of crashes have been reported to Apple. Please tell me if i can be of help?

A trace is available, but i couldn't find a way to attach it :)
