    Is there a free sample database I can use to practice ODBC connectivity?


      Wondering if anyone knows of a free (or at least inexpensive) sample database out on the webs somewhere which I can use to practice setting up Filemaker Server via ESS (ODBC).


      I tried the method in the FTS 15 Advanced training Series, but I am all Mac.  I even downloaded a trial version of parallels and Windows, but I kept getting hung up getting the drivers to play nice.


      I would love to be able to get some hands on no-risk practice setting up shadow tables, etc, so I can get a feel for that.  Up till now it's all just been "book learnin'"


      Does something like what I'm describing exist?
