We have a Cott Systems database installed and I am accessing the data through Access 97 with a Minisoft HP3000 ODBC driver. I have no problems with that. But now I need to import the Cott data into SQL Server 7 and it seems that SQL does not understand the Minisoft driver. There are things set up in the ODBC called schemas, which I think are Cott views that SQL doesn't know how to handle. Would anyone happen to know if there is another driver I could try?

The driver we use is OpenRDA by Automation Technology Inc.
But also there is another company called Merant that makes them as well.  Hope this helps . . .

You have several open questions:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qShow.jsp?qid=20185039
http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qShow.jsp?qid=20143701

To assist you in your cleanup, I'm providing the following guidelines:

1.  Stay active in your questions and provide feedback whenever possible. Likewise, when feedback has not been provided by the experts, commenting again makes them receive an email notification, and they may provide you with further information. Experts have no other method of searching for questions in which they have commented, except manually.

2.  Award points by hitting the Accept Comment As Answer button located above and to the left of that expert's comment.

3.  When grading, be sure to read:

to ensure that you understand the grading system here at EE. If you grade less than an A, you must explain why.

4.  Questions that were not helpful to you should be PAQ'd (stored in the database for their valuable content?even if not valuable to you) or deleted. To PAQ or delete a question, you must first post your intent in that question to make the experts aware. Then, if no experts object after three full days, you can post a zero-point question at community support to request deletion or PAQ. Please include the link(s) to the question(s).
CS:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qList.jsp?ta=commspt
At that point, a moderator can refund your points and PAQ or delete the question for you. The delete button does not work.

5.  If you fail to respond to this cleanup request, I must report you to the Community Support Administrator for further action.

Our intent is to get the questions cleaned up, and not to embarrass or shame anyone. If you have any questions or need further assistance at all, feel free to ask me in this question or post a zero-point question at CS. We are very happy to help you in this task!


thanks!
