Here is a preliminary code

Put this in ur options:

Uselsx "*LSXODBC"




Dim con As New ODBCConnection
Dim qry As New ODBCQuery
Dim result As New ODBCResultSet
' Connect to the datasource
If Not con.ConnectTo("OurODBCSource") Then ' here give your odbc name
Messagebox "Could not connect ",, "Error connecting"
Exit Sub
End If
' Set up the odbc objects
Set qry.Connection = con
Set result.Query = qry

qry.SQL = "SELECT * FROM <your tablename>"


' and execute the query - and wait for the result set to fill up with data
result.Execute

' Now roll through each row of the result set and create a new document in our database for each row in the table
If result.IsResultSetAvailable Then
Do
result.NextRow

msgbox result.getvalue("name")
Loop Until result.IsEndOfData
result.Close(DB_CLOSE)

End If

' Close the connection to the ODBC Source
con.Disconnect

Yes, Notes can.  Agents can use LCLSX (better but harder) or LS:DO (easier but less flexible). Define a system DSN, then connect to it using either of the above.

FYI, Partha's *LSXODBC is the same as LS:DO.

Hi adspmo,

Check out this class http://www13.brinkster.com/ranjeetrain/source/gware/clsodbc.asp I wrote it to do something similar. This code is tested ok agains a sybase database.

Yes, on the machine where the code will run, you need a system DSN. That's a requirement.
