From FileMaker Pro
You can connect to a DSN to load IBM Cloud Object Storage data into FileMaker Pro tables that can be refreshed on demand.
Building a Query to IBM Cloud Object Storage
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 IBM Cloud Object Storage 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 IBM Cloud Object Storage 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 IBM Cloud Object Storage when you run a search on the Fields tab of the relationships graph. To pick up new fields added to IBM Cloud Object Storage, select File > Manage > Database. In the resulting dialog, click the Fields tab, select a table, and then select columns to sync.
