FileMaker 5.0 -- crashes on "Attach"

137 Views, 6 Replies
04-26-2000 05:41 PM
I've been using AutoCAD 2000 Map 4 for a few months, but just now attempting
to connect an external database...

To the best of my understanding (which is admittedly shaky) I've worked thru
"AutoCAD Map 200 Release 4 User's Guide" Chapter 9 "Working with external
databases" (p. 287-298).

I followed the steps as best I can to connect a database that does NOT
automatically create a DSN, etc -->> "Configuring a Data Source", p. 298. At
the end of this process, I "tested the connection" and got a message to the
effect that the connection worked.

HOWEVER, when I then go back to Map > Database > Data Sources > Attach, I
get the following error messages:

Unhandled Exception C0000005 (Access Violation Reading 0xffffffff)
at address 20CD880h

Fatal error: Unhandled Access Violation Reading 0x1a4fd54 Exception
at 7fe2851bh

Does FileMaker 5.0 work w/ AutoCAD 2000? and Map 4?

Anybody know how to make it happen????????????

Never tried but I know that you have to have the FileMaker database file
open in order to connect. Does that help?

What does "open" mean? That FileMaker has to be running with that database
loaded?

If this is so, then I need to install a copy of FileMaker software on
whatever computer will be using the map/database combination? (the ODBC
drivers for that software must be installed).

A2K recognizes a number of different databases that it can attach to (dBASE,
Excel, Paradox, FoxPro, Access, Oracle,...). I somebody sends me a file
created in one of these, I also need to buy/run the parent software?

My (incorrect?) understanding is that the database is "independent" of the
"parent" software that created it -- that all I need is a copy of the
database file and ODBC drivers where A2K can find it???

Connecting to dBase, Excel, or Access definitely do not require
that the parent software be installed. I am pretty sure that
Oracle, Foxpro, and Paradox are the same. This is the first
case in which I have heard a claim that the parent software must
be installed and running. I know nothing about Filemaker, so I
don't know if the claim is true or not.

Jon,

A true client / server DBMS like Oracle and SQL Server can
only be connected when the DBMS software is installed on an
accessible server, and the client software (ODBC or other
driver) is installed on the client machine. Products like
dBase, FoxPro and Paradox are really client only. They have
no server - side execution capability, so the data can
*only* be directly accessed by the "client" software. That
is, the ODBC (or other) driver knows the data format.

Client drivers for client/server DBMS's connect to a server,
while those for client only DBMS's connnect to the data.
That's why client only DBMS's do not need to be installed
for the connection to work.
