How do I connect Filemaker to an Airtable database using ODBC. Filemaker can work with available Windows ODBC drivers. What is the procedure?

That is not possible, since Airtable does not support ODBC.

Airtable communicates with external apps through REST APIs, so you can have Airtable communicate with FileMaker Server’s API, or you can communicate via Claris Connect.

You can also write API calls to Airtable by using FileMaker’s ”Insert from URL” script step.

Additionally, if you want to migrate your data from FileMaker to Airtable so that you can use Airtable instead of FileMaker from this point forward, you can also export and import any text-based data. Migrating container fields would take extra work.
