VBA connect to Filemaker DB?

VBA connect to Filemaker DB?

Hi Folks,

I'm hoping that someone can hook me up with some VBA code or tips for connecting to a Filemaker Pro database and pulling a recordset from it.  I only need to read the contents of the recordset and pass that info elsewhere.  My preference is to stay with VBA but I suppose that I can go to .NET if need be.

I've done some searching on the web but haven't come across anything helpful as yet.  There are some claims that Filemaker can use ODBC but I don't have that driver on my computer.  Does anyone know if it even uses SQL?
