    Use Python and ODBC to run super fast statistical analysis on FileMaker


      One of our members at COFMUG gave this great presentation last month and I wanted to post it here as a resource to share.


      In the demo, he shows how to setup an ODBC DSN, then utilize python to load data from FileMaker. Once loaded, he can instantly perform numerous high-level aggregate functions and statistics on the entire data set.


      Python is on the fringe for FileMaker developers, but it's a great simple language to learn that is a good addition to anyone's toolkit.
