    Connecting to an MS SQL Server via ODBC: Which driver is needed?

    Polarpro

      Hello,

       

      I'm trying to establish a connection from a FileMaker server to an MS SQL server and don't know where to get the necessary ODBC driver from.

       

      Here is the setting: I am on a Windows Server 2008 R2 (Version 6.1). On this machine there is a FileMaker 13 Server installed. From there I would like to connect via ODBC to a MS SQL server (Version 10.5), in order to work in FileMaker with the tables in the sql sever.

       

      I tried this before in a Mac environment, and evereything worked fine; but here I have the difficiulty that I do not know which ODBC driver I need to use and where to get it from. I must admit, I'm confused; the FileMaker page (http://www.filemaker.com/support/technologies/sql.html) points only to drivers for Mac.

       

      Thank you for your help,

      Mike
