I have no idea currently. May well be on a PC. The client is
probably an OSX machine.

No, that's not obvious. I'm totally comfortable in my Linux and
networked world, but ODBC is one of those scary foreign words that
means "doesn't work like a Unix-head would expect or want."

Thanks for the note. Apparently FMPro can also have web access
using standard GET syntax, so I'll check both out and see what
I can get working faster.
