Hi - I want to use Excel's external data>>database query to drag info from my filemaker file.

I have downloaded the Actual technologies pack and in the OBDC manager I selected the DSN option but am not sure which driver option to use as none seem quite right (Access, open source database, oracle, SQL server). at this stage I want to run filemaker and excel on the same local machine. ( i tried the access option but that seems to be for FM to be the client not the source)

Any help to move forward would be good thanks.

Hmm. I didn't install anything extra and I was able to select Data>Get External Data>Import from FM Pro. This lets you select a file, specify import mapping, and then how/if you want to refresh the import on File>Open. Is this what you want?
