And Filemaker, while a database is not a database server.
I can see that this is not going to be something that will work.
Have you considered a real database server such as MySQL?
This is my first time developing anything. I can make pages just fine but my problem is connecting to databases from the pages. I'm trying to connect to Filemaker and Excel files. Which are located on seperate servers (PC & Mac). My site will be located on the PC server, but I'm presently developing it at my workstation. I have "The Complete Reference for Dreamweaver MX" from McGraw Hill and I'm not literate in its termonology. I try to follow what it says to establish a connection but it never works, let alone display the files in the Database Panel. I'm so lost! Help me I'm drowning!
