From FileMaker Pro
You can connect to a DSN to load Sage 200 data into FileMaker Pro tables that can be refreshed on demand.
Building a Query to Sage 200
FileMaker Pro provides a wizard to build the data import SQL.
- In your FileMaker Pro database, select File > Import Records > ODBC Data Source, and select the CData Sage 200 Source DSN.
In the resulting SQL Query Builder wizard, select tables and columns and then click Insert into SQL Query. You can also edit this query directly.
You can use the UI to build filters in the WHERE clause by clicking the WHERE tab.
- In the resulting Import Field Mapping wizard, you can define mappings from columns in the data source to the columns in a destination table. To create a new table for the query results, select New Table ("CData Sage 200 Source") from the Target box and click Import.
You can load any changes made to the external data into your FileMaker tables in Browse by selecting Records > Refresh Window. FileMaker Pro also executes a SELECT to Sage 200 when you run a search on the Fields tab of the relationships graph. To pick up new fields added to Sage 200, select File > Manage > Database. In the resulting dialog, click the Fields tab, select a table, and then select columns to sync.
