      FileMaker Server 7 ODBC Issues

      Your post

      My setup:

      FileMaker Server 7 

      Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server Service Pack 2 (version 5.2)

       

      Goal: Connect via ODBC to client database.

       

      I understand that I need FileMaker Server advanced in order to have ODBC connection capabilities. 

       

      Issue #1: Can't upgrade because of limited funds.  My client is a non-profit organization that can't afford an upgrade to the latest version of FileMaker Server Advanced.  I also understand FileMaker Server 7 Advanced is no longer supported, so that is out as a cheaper alternative.

       

      As a hack, I was thinking of copying the databases and hosting them from FileMaker Pro 7.  Then writing a script that will run a daily copy/paste to update the files.  Is this possible?

       

      Any other ideas or suggestions?
