Hi,

I have some data in a FMP database that I want to transfer to an Oracle database. How would I go about doing it? I am using FMP 5.0, I heard that 5.5 has ODBC connections but I think 5.0 has it too... How would I set up this connection so that I can move the data? Thanks...

Oracle? shocked.gif If this is just a one-shot deal, it's probably overkill to set up ODBC. Just export text or dbf or sylk or whatever format Oracle prefers, and import that.

It's 'should be' easy to set up ODBC. Simply enable Remote or Local Data Access Companion in Preferences. File Maker even has "File Maker Oracle 8 Driver" which could be applicable to your situation.

Remember, though, that FM supports only Level1 OBDC, which I think means most basic SQL statements. Others may correct me on that.
