Hi Explorer,

If you're using the BDE, create a new BDE Alias of type "SQL Server".  Set the ODBC DSN property to your ODBC driver, set your default USER NAME and you should be set.

Hope this helps,

Further:

I just tried exactly the same thing as you did and got the same error message "MSSQL: Unknown Version: Mapping error: Bad template: SQL Server [^0-9]*([0-9]+)\.".  I'm wondering if it maybe a version issue with SQL Server 2000.  Perhaps this driver only likes SQL Server 7+????

I've had a look on the net and in Borland's support site and I can't find anything at all about this error message with regards to SQL Server.  There is references to Sybase, but I doubt changing anything in that line will make a difference.  I'll keep looking and post back if I find anything.

Did you try using it the way I suggested above?  I don't get any errors like that at all.

There is nothing that I can see on Borland's website.
