here is the context:
Operating System: Windows 7 Pro
FileMaker: Pro Advanced 12.0V4
I am in module 11 of FileMaker training series. I am instructed to create a System DSN to the SQL Server demo database. Up to now everything is fine, the DSN works fine.
Then I pick File > Import Records > ODBC Data Source... and my newly created DSN does not show. Looking at the displayed DSNs, I see that they are all User DSN . Is it an error in the course material, a bug in that version of FileMaker, or else ?
Then I created a User DSN and manage to import the data as instructed. Going to Manage > Database... Tables tab, I found strange things:
What are tables with information in Italic ? I looked into the database pointed to by the DSN, and these strange tables are in that db. I must add I tried a few times importing from that db, that may explain why the tables are listed more than one time.
