FMSA 12 ODBC & Portals

Your post

     We are using FMSA 12 running on Windows Server 2008 r2  and recently linked our database to MySQL on our webserver using ODBC. I included a layout in FM which displays the MySQL records and we can easily add, delete, and modify the MySQL data without any problems.

     However, if I include the ODBC data in a portal on another layout or add a portal to the layout of the ODBC records, Filemaker begins to randomly and regularly crash.  In looking at the FM ODBC manual, I noted it states the SQL driver does not support FM portals.

     Does this mean the MySQL driver does not support the use of portals either?
