ODBC source fails > FM gets stuck

Dear all,

 

Filemaker works perfect and keeps data between MySQL online and FM local in sync. With help of a ODBC connector from http://www.actualtech.comhttp://www.actualtech.com/

 

But when the server at the other end of the ODBC connection drops, there is no graceful disconnection. No warning. FM doesn't crash, just goes into a unlimited loop.. but even when the online server is back alive again, FM will remain in a coma. It will even prevent to quit FM. Only option is to disconnect it from the server window, and restart.

 

> Does anyone have any experience with ODBC in FM17? - maybe this issue is addressed in the upgrade -

> Any way of preventing this behavior? - some error handeling -

 

Cheers

Richard
