Hi,

I'm attempting to write data to a filemaker database from visual basic using the filemaker odbc driver (FMFMP50.dll - v. 3.60.00.00). I am running a trial version of filemaker under windows 2000. When I run sample code provided by Microsoft (http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q281/7/55.ASP), i get the following error: "datasource name not found and no default driver specified". Though the odbc driver has been added, it would appear that it can't find the odbc database.

Anyone know any other resources or sample code that I could look at in order to get these two applications to speak to each other? Or is there any known issue with the trial version of filemaker (e.g. odbc intentionally disabled)?

Thanks much for your help,

Ted

It sounds like VB has nothing to connect to...

This usually happens to me for two reasons. ???-)

1. I have forgotten to turn local data access companion on.

2. I have forgotten to open the Filemaker database.

Unlike MS data sources, FilemakerPro has to be running to be able to serve as a data source.You could of course open the database from within your code.

Is this at all helpful?
