If I remember correctly, its been some years since I looked at it but the
FedEx ship manager can read/write to any ODBC file source.
You just need to tell the FedEx ship manager the DSN name and I think the
table name.
It all depends on if the FedEx program is 32-bit or 64-bit. (I don't recall
which it was.)
If itís a 32-bit program you go to the 32-bit ODBC manager and point that to
your database.
You should be able to test if it works from dBASE.
Same if itís a 64-bit program only you will not be able to test it from
dBASE since dBASE is only 32-bit.
In both cases you want to use the "Microsoft dBASE Driver (*.dbf)" driver.
The driver may not be installed by default depending on your OS and if its
32-bit or 64-bit.
That's about the extent of help I can be. I started doing the integration
but never finished. it was just more work than I wanted to do for the few
shipments we made per month.
I'm sure there are others here with more knowledge about setting up ODBC for
dbf tables.

Hi.. I am using dbase11 and it should connect in 32bit.  Basically the fedex
tech guy was trying to set it up so we could sync with their tracking
numbers directly in my dbase forms.  Not sure if this is possible.  But the
tech mentioned I have to configure somehow so that I can see the .dbf files
on my computer through oddc.  Possibly I heard him wrong but I thought he
said oddc??

This is not essential.  I guess I am more curious about it than anything.

Thanks!!
