SP4 notes say ODBC connection is fixed (as did SP3), but Vectorworks is still crashing within 5 minutes of updating the drawing with data drawn from an external FileMaker database. This long-standing issue (nearly two years since successful connection) is preventing good BIM data connections for Vectorworks, a real shame.
Heyo, I just tried to connect VW 2019 with a Ecxel document over the ODBC connection to transfer data. I try to use this Tutorial from @Miguel Barrera The Problem I have is when try to choose the dataconnection in VW, the options are not givin: I create connections in the ODCB Manager tfor every Ecxel Driver who exist: Why isnt this working in VW? I try to run VW with Admin Rights but still no result in the list.
77 downloadsODBC connection is useful for those that have an external database and want to use values from it within Vectorworks. It is also helpful going the other way, allowing users to edit their external database from within Vectorworks. These are more advanced nodes that will require an understanding of setting up and working with external databases.
