I have been looking for a database application to use in conjunction with R (on
a Windows network).  When I approached my organization's IT department to ask
about using MySQL, they made a counter-offer of Filemaker Pro (v8).  It is not
specifically mentioned in 'R Data Import/Export', nor do searches of the
archives turn up much information.

Does anyone have any experience using Filemaker Pro with R?
Should package RODBC work with Filemaker, as it is odbc-compliant? (I will be
doing some trials anyway).
Any other relevant advice welcome.
