Hello everyone,


We have just finished upgrading our databases to FileMaker 12 and are now experiencing some issues with the display of data from a MySQL database.


This is how the information looks in the MySQL database:




And this is how it looks when I put the MySQL field onto a FileMaker layout:




As part of the FileMaker upgrade we also needed to upgrade our Actual ODBC driver (the old one didn't support 32 bit) so now I am unsure if the issue is with the Actual ODBC driver, or FileMaker itself...


We are running a Mac server, and have a mixture of Mac and PC clients (all of which display the data incorrectly).


FileMaker server version:

FileMaker Pro Advanced version (installed on all clients): 12.0v4

Actual ODBC driver version: Actual Open Source Databases 3.1.16 (MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite)


Has anyone else come across this issue?
