Hi,
    I want to connect to an AS400 using ADO. I know how to do this, however I do not have the necessary Provider installed. Can anyone tell me where I can get the provider I need FREE of charge?

Thanks.

Hi dustybryn,

Have you installed client access express 4.0 with the service packs? You should get the IDBMDA400 OLEDB provider if you do.

I cannot find it on IBM's site at the moment, it may well not be a free item unfortunately. However if you have an AS/400 around somewhere it is likely that you will have a copy of client access that you can install.

Hi,
    I've already tried the IBM site, unfortunately the downloads on the page you posted only contain code examples and not the actual OLE DB provider itself.

Thanks all the same,

Dust.
