    Is it possible to bind a MySQL table into the relations graph (using ESS) and develop it on+for both Mac and Windows platforms?


      Hello all,


      Our database works on and is developed on both windows and mac computers.


      I have however a BIG problem with developing an ESS-connection to a web-shop on both platforms.


      I can USE the database on both platforms. But I can only DEVELOP on windows, because if I try to develop the database on a Mac the following problem occurs:


      When I double click on an ESS-TO in the relations graph, I see the list of the available sql tables, but the corresponding table IS NOT SELECTED.

      If I select the table again, FileMaker creates a second shadow table and links the TO to it!

      If I then return to windows and look at the TO under windows.


      I think it may have something to do with the different drivers we use for the two operating systems:


      On the windows computer we use the MYSQL ODBC driver.

      On the Mac we use the Actual technologies Open Source Databases ODBC driver.


      I cannot find a solution for this problem. Can anybody help?


      Thanking you
