With the Web Companion, you can only have home pages with just the fields of the db. I will have a website where only a small part will address the db. The rest of the website will be normal one. I have to choose a way to do things in Dreamweaver Ultradev. The layouts will be on the website, and the data come from FMP Unlimited, remotely from where I live. To be clearer, the website will have a commercial side, and a "research child" side. You'll understand what I mean if you look at http://www.chaperonrouge.org

All the data on that page will come live from server.

They are two totally different things. Web Companion is a limited web server, which parses a subset of the HTML language (called CDML) and performs database functions based on this.

ODBC is simply a way to perform generic function on a database (add, update, delete, etc). It does nothing else, you would still need to use some kind of layout tool to deal with the ODBC results.

I would like to thank you two for trying to help me. This is the very first time I have to use a db, accessed thru the web. I will use Dreamweaver Ultradev for the design of web pages, and I understood, but I could be wrong, that I have to choose between Cold Fusion, JSP, or ASP. The website will allow for payment online, so it must be secure. The customer will just enter his name, his pass and a gsm number, the website will collect the gps information from the gsm, send it to a map server, and show the map on screen. That's the main part of the website.

So my question is simple: what is the best choice for extracting and storing data between the website and the db ?

If you need any details, just ask for it.

Many many thanks to you two for the time you kindly gimme.

No. You can work any mix especially in frames. I am mixing pages, pictures and WC pages in frames from various servers, no problem.

Anyway, where is the ODBC part and advantage of it?

      Has anyone tried the connector on Windows 2000 and had some success with it? The company I work for just got FMPro5 Unlimited, but we mostly a Win2K shop; including the intranet server... How do I make it work?

      I can't get auto-filled data to appear in a new record.htm so the user can see the info for those fields. After the record is submitted the info is there correctly but it doesn't show in the new record.htm. I've tried to use the cdml tag:
      [FMP-Field artNumber] in a textbox and not in a textbox as is used for the display. My guess is it's not accessing the dB in order to display this info only the field names.
      Thanks

      Dear all:
      I would like to use the custom web publishing features of FM Pro Unlimited, using CDML. However, I am unable to find a reference of CDML Tags on the FM site (I always get errors when trying to search the tech info knowledge base). Could anyone refer me to a source?
      Also, does anyone know of a good CDML-tutorial? I don't seem to be able to find anything of that sort as part of the FM Pro Unlimited electronic documentation.
      Any help would be highly appreciated
      Cheers,
      Ron

      I have set up an Apache Web server running on a Mac OS X server and I have installed the Filemaker web connector. After following the instructions I have been asked to type the URL http://127.0.0.1/FMPro?config to set up the web connector on the server. When I type this I get the message "Not found. The reported URL/FMPro was not found on this server. Can anyone help.

      FileMaker Inc recommends (and has reserved) port 591 for Web Companion. Try that.
