I have FileMaker 11 and I created a interface to pull data from my website's sql. I am able to change the name of a product, but I cannot change the price of the mysql table through the FM 11 interface. Is there something I miss doing? I am using odbc to connect. Thanks.
We've just installed Sage 200; from Sage 50.
So, now we have an SQL platform database to run our company on, moving up!
We use FM and FMS to add function and output. Sage 200 will take over some of this; but we have Shipping and Inspection systems we've built that need to read data from Sage.
The DSN has been setup and is working. The usr and pwd work. I can add a table to my FM database schema, go and select the data source and place/add a table. But there is no data inside any of the tables; and there should be.
Anybody got any tips for me?

This is about a Filemaker Server <--> MySQL sync setup.
I have two fields, serialNumber and writeBackNumber, and an altogether separate primaryKey that isn't used for this part.
If I create a new record on Filemaker, everything is fine. the serialNumber is auto-incremented on record creation and synced successfully.
However, If I create a new record in MySQL, I can leave both serialNumber and writeBackNumber blank, but when the sync happens, Filemaker does not auto-increment the serial number and put it in the field. It looks like it's just skipping the auto-enter part altogether and leaving serialNumber blank. This seems like what's going on:
Create new record in MySQL. serialNumber and writeBackNumber are blank. Click sync, 1 record gets synced to Filemaker. Record appears in Filemaker with both fields blank. Click sync, that record gets erased from MySQL but is still in Filemaker. Is this a bug?
Do I need to edit the MirrorSync customization script to perform the auto-enter on hub (Filemaker) pre-sync and then copy that over to the spoke (MySQL) post-sync?
I've got a strange case on my hands. Here's some background:
I've got an ODBC connection to JD Edwards Enterprise 1 (Oracle DB). I have a layout that shows fields from the RMA Line Items table. There's a field at the top that lets you find by RMA number, then the matching records (found via self-join relationship) are displayed in a portal.
This has been working well for years, and then one of our users stumbled across a record that couldn't be found by FileMaker, though it definitely exists. The problem seems to be limited to one specific RMA number. If you go into Find mode and enter the number, FileMaker says there are no matching records. However, if I run an ExecuteSQL statement in the Data Viewer tool, that is able to find the records. There are 179 line item records for the problem RMA number.
I'm pretty sure there's no limit on number of rows or anything like that. I would have thought it to be some sort of record corruption in JDE that is preventing FileMaker from seeing the records, but that doesn't explain why I can see the data by doing an ExecuteSQL statement. It must have something to do with the ODBC table occurrences, but I can't think of what that may be. As I said, the problem seems to be limited to this one particular RMA number.
Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks in advance!
