Problem while creating alias names

I'm Working with Delphi 5 and MSSQL 7. and using around 50 databases.. so i have to create aliases for each databases..now l can't create more aliases, while creating the alias thru alias manager this error occurs " Unable to write to configuration file" i think it is a config. settings problem. How can i create more aliases?

HI,
What a number of aliases is the maximum in your case?

Hi Sumeesh,

When you say 50 databases, do you mean 50 databases or 50 tables?

Here's the code I use to create a BDE alias to a MS-SQL Server 2000 database:

var
  Params: TStringList;
begin
  Params := TStringList.Create;
  try
    Params.Add('USER NAME=SA');
    Params.Add('SERVER NAME=MSSQL2KSVR');
    Params.Add('DATABASE NAME=NEW17LOCAL');
    Session.AddAlias('TESTMSSQL','MSSQL', Params);
    Session.SaveConfigFile;
  finally
    Params.Free;
  end;
end;

If you're still getting configuration file errors, then you have a corrupt BDE.  Try reinstalling the BDE off the Delphi CD.

Hope this helps,

Stu

sumeesh,

Can I ask why nestorua got the points for this question when he provided no answer?  I provided working code as to how to create an alias within Delphi and you didn't even give me the courtesy of providing a reason why my code was useless too you.  I have no problems with other people getting points for something, but not when their post was a question, and especially when I provided a working answer!

Kindly explain...
