    Connecting to FileMaker Pro using ODBC Driver



      Connecting to FileMaker Pro using ODBC Driver


      Hi all,


      I am trying to connect to an existing FileMaker Pro database using the supplied ODBC drivers. My application is written in C# using Visual Studio 2005. I can successfully create the 'User DNS' in windows (Vista) for the correct database. In Visual Studio I can also create a data connection inside the Server Explorer for this ODBC DNS. All good so far :).


      However, when I try to use this connection in code it errors...


      "ERROR [IM002] [Microsoft][ODBC Drive Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified."


      I have tried 2 different connection strings, both resulting in the same error...






      So, has anyone got any examples/experience of writing a 3rd party application that uses ODBC drivers to connect to FileMaker Pro databases?


      Many thanks.
