Value lists from external data sources?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

We're in the process of migrating our fm tables to mysql, however we'll have to carry on using fm for a while and so we need to link the external tables back to fm.

I had a table called membership_types in fm which I duly moved to mysql with all it's data and then linked it in the fm database. However one of my value lists used data from this membership_types table (when it was still in fm) and when I tried to do the same with the linked mysql membership_types table fm wouldn't let me (external tables are greyed out when trying to select a table for the value list).

Is there some sort of workaround so that value lists could display data from external data sources?

Many thanks in advance.

Marcsi

Yes, you will have to bring the data back into FikleMaker unfortunately or at least temporarily...
