    Anybody know of an SQL plugin that works server side?

      A while back Jake Traynham posted an article online about using plugins on Filemaker Go. His method was to embed the function call in an unstored calc field that had global fields in the calculation formula. Since Find Requests on unstored calc fields that use global fields are executed on the server not on the client, he could load the global field with criteria, search on the unstored calc field, and his plugin calls get executed on the server (provided of course that the server has the plugin installed). Jake had an example that called the server side version of CNS Barcode, (from memory).

       

      I'm trying to do something like this, but using SQL Insert statements. Filemaker does not yet support SQL INSERT statements, so I need to do it with a plugin. qFMSQL and Base Elements both work client side, neither work server side. Does anyone know of an SQL Plugin that would work on server side?
