    Unanswered: Integrating FMP and MySQL

    Impossible? I hope not!

    I need to make FMP seemlessly work with MySQL. That is, I need FMP to open and use ONLY MySQL databases. I want FMP to be the frontend, all the pretty stuff, and MySQL to be the ONLY database. Is this possible? Is anybody doing this? Are there any questions I have not answered in this post that are pertinent to the answering of my questions? Thanks in advance I hope you all can help.

    You can not really made a realtime front end with Filemaker to sql database.

    But you can use FMP odbc future to import all data from mysql in fmp db and use execute sql to update / insert data into mysql.
