FileMaker Pro as a Data Source
Yes, you can use ODBC or JDBC to query and insert/update data into FileMaker databases if they are hosted on FileMaker Server Advanced or FileMaker Server 13. You can also use FileMaker Pro as a front end to query other databases like mySQL, SQL Server and Oracle via ODBC.
