ODBC Error - Driver-page-001.jpgODBC Communication  Error-page-001.jpgMYSQL for FM  Connection-page-001.jpgThe objective is to use an ODBC external database (MySql) to connect to FM. The purpose is to build Crosstab/Dynamic reports.

 

The ODBC driver has been downloaded and purchased from ActualTech.com. The MySQL has been downloaded and tested. Yet, I have not been able to complete the connection.

 

I have also attempted to create the connection via FM by setting up the external ODBC tables via managing relationships using the FM app. Still, unable to complete the connection.

 

Attached are print screens which would help explain the challenge.

 

Thank you,
