We are delving into an area that is a bit off topic. But I am actually a
Tango developer and instructor and quite happy with the advanced features of
Tango over FM4. FM4 is an excellent product but can't match the
functionality of Tango Enterprise. Additionally, I don't use FileMaker Pro
as the database product in this configuration, I use Oracle 7. I mentioned
Tango for an example of database connectivity. I really want to connect to a
database product called Butler SQL on Macintosh. This has either ODBC or DAM
connectivity. It's not an AppleScript connection, which is typically really

What I am really seeking is anyone using ODBC or DAM toolbox manager
routines with FBII and wants to share their code.

Merry Christmas
