Hi,

 

So I have a client that has many many databases and servers.

Some legacy systems are still in Filemaker 11 and haven't been upgraded yet.

 

I remember when Filemaker 7 came out we had some systems in FM 7 talk to FM 6 via ODBC until we got all the systems upgraded.

 

I'm trying to pull this off to get Filemaker 13 or 14 or 15 to talk to some filemaker 11 databases or vice versa.

 

So I configured the datasource to Filemaker 11 database and I can see it from Excel.

 

But when I choose the datasource from Filemaker 14 it just returns error "Not Supported".

Now I'm on mac and I'm wondering if it's a 32bit/64bit problem getting the two to talk.

 

I'm about to try to go the other way,  filemaker 11 to see filemaker 14 odbc source.
