FileMaker Pro 15 Resource Center
With Actual Technologies ODBC drivers, you can quickly and easily connect to your SQL database. Our drivers let you import data from a wide variety of popular databases, including MS Access and PostgreSQL.
With FileMaker External SQL Source (ESS) feature, you can transparently view and update SQL Server, Oracle and MySQL data without writing any SQL code. And now with FileMaker 15, you can use the Actual ESS Adapter
to use ESS with Postgres and DB2 on Mac OS X and Windows.
We’re here to support you. Take advantage of our FileMaker resources. All the pieces are falling into place.
You can think of an ODBC driver as being similar to a printer driver. Just as you need to have the right printer driver installed for your application to be able to use your printer, FileMaker Pro needs the right ODBC driver to be installed in order to connect to your database.
And just like you need to use the Printer Setup Utility to configure your printer before you can use it, you will need to use the ODBC Manager utility to configure your ODBC connection before FileMaker Pro can connect to your database.
