    Hello,
    To access a Filemaker Pro database through ADO, set up a System DSN using the Filemaker Pro ODBC Driver.
    I use the following connection string:
    "dsn=your_dns; Initial Catalog=your_database; User Id=; Password="
    I use the .fp5 file extension for my databases.

    HTH,
    Jeff
