Hot to access FMP7 server data.

Hot to access FMP7 server data.

Hot to access FMP7 server data.

I need to import FMP7 data into Oracle, I was thinking about using ODBC.
I tried:
1) Installed ODBC and FMP7 files on my work station, open the file with file maker pro -> it works I can access it with ODBC.
2) Tried to access the data from FileMaker Server: I always get connection refused.
3) Tried the same directly from the server: also get connection refused.

Is there a way to access fmp7 data without opening the file that I need to access?

Thanks in advance,

RE: Hot to access FMP7 server data.

You doin' this one time or over and over again?


RE: Hot to access FMP7 server data.

We need to do it regularly (once a week or more often) and if possible automatically.

If it's not possible to access File Maker Server data directly, is it possible to create some scripts that when called from a batch will export FileMaker data to CSV ?

Thank you and best regards,

   You can connect to Filemaker via ODBC. Have you set up Filemaker Server to allow ODBC connections? I'm using Filemaker 8, so it may be a little different, but you can go into the file and, when specifying a group's privileges, give them access via ODBC. You'll also need to set up Filemaker Server to allow ODBC connections - check this out: http://www.filemaker.com/help/15-Using%20ODBC.html.
