Provide support for FileMaker as a database connection

Currently, Alteryx can connect to FileMaker via an ODBC connection, and for the most part, it works great. The only issue I've hit thus far is when importing data with foreign text in it - Arabic and Cyrillic text specifically – sometimes the data comes in correctly, and sometimes it’s turned into garbage characters. I’m not sure how widely used FileMaker is, but the full support for it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I am attempting to connect to a File Maker ODBC however I get Internal "Error in_getNumericAttribute: number too big" when running my workflow.  Does anyone have any experience connecting to a File Maker ODBC in which you can offer some pointers/documentation to help me resolve this issue?
