Title

script for import ODBC from mysql

Your post

Does anyone know the best way to import data from a remote mysql database to a local computer with server advanced that serves a small office.

 

When I bought server 9 advanced I thoguht it would be easy to time a script to get data through ODBC from a remote mysql database but the many many support calls I made said "no".

 

Any idea how to get the data in a timed manor - say every hour.  The server gets requests from many web site "quote pages"

 

Also (this might be questions #2 but) can you open a field in filemaker to sync / change data  directly with a remote mysql database?  For instance to change a price in a pricing cataloge?

 

Thanks, steelbut (larry)
