Our Database Administrator has emailed me a .dsn file that contains the information to connect through ODBC to a SQL database. Is there a way to import this into FileMaker 15 on Windows 7, so that the database connection will be available in the Manage External Data Source list? Is there a folder where this can be copied and have FileMaker see it?
Does it also need to be on FMS if the solution will be hosted?
You have to create the DNS your self. Also make sure you use 32/64 bit that you are running your FileMaker Pro/FileMaker Server on. Have to be the same.
