ODBC Connection to FileMaker

I need to build an application that will be able to pull information from a FileMaker Server 14 database and write some information back to it. I did find this thread that gave me some encouragement…
I have the ODBC Client installed and set up the connection with ODBC Manager. Haven’t looked into the ODBC Kit yet.

I could accomplish this by having the user also have FileMaker client and database open on their computer while just talking to it with Applescript but it would be so much better if I could just use the ODBC connection and send some SQL commands to retrieve some fields from a search and write very little back to just one time field.
I’m wondering if anyone else have ever done some ODBC connecting to FileMaker and would share their knowledge and code to get me going?
