I use Visual Basic 6 and Client Acess Express V4R4.
When I try to create the Connection String for the ADO and I use the build button I choose the
IBM AS400 OLD DB Provider, and a Data Source then I click on the test connection button and its work.
But, when I click on the OK button
and return to the property page, the text box of the Connection String is
empty.
How should I write the Connection String
to use this provider?

Thank you.

Public cnYourAS400 As New ADODB.Connection
Public ixYourAS400 As New AD400.Connection

cnYourAS400.Open "Provider=IBMDA400;Data Source=YourAS400;", "", ""
ixYourAS400.Open "BVRAS01", "", ""

This will make the connection to the AS/400.

If you want more information go to http://www.as400.ibm.com/clientaccess/oledb/.

This method works in either VB 5 or 6.
