Thank you David,
Unfortunately, Seedcode works the other way around (Sending data from Filemaker to iCal). I am really trying to do the reverse... i.e. populating tables in Filemaker with events that appear on a specific calendar in iCal.
Bento used to be able to read IOS contacts and calendars, but I never saw this capability in Filemaker...
Have you looked into the other SeedCode product, Zulu?
I did look into their Zulu server product, and it works well. The limitation is that it works great for iCal and Google Calendars, but does not work with MS Exchange and Outlook.
Ideally, I want a lightweight solution where a Filemaker Go App on the iPad can "re-skin" (present with a different UI) the data contained in the iPad calendar application. The iPad calendar itself is very flexible, since it supports synchronization with iCloud, Google Calendars, MS Exchange, ....
Hope this helps!
I think it's highly unlikely you'll find a solution that you're looking for.
DJ is wise - heed his comment. And send suggestions to FMI for access to SQL lite (the built-in db for iOS).
