Hi,

I am at early stages of creating a Web application using ASP.NET and Visual Studio .NET.  I would like to know what is the proper code for connecting to Sybase using OleDbConnection?  I set up a DSN using Dsedit and called it 'mars'.

I am very new to this.  I always used ODBC before, and have no experience with ASP. NET (just took a course).

Thank you,

Mirek

Take a look here:

http://www.able-consulting.com/dotnet/adonet/Data_Providers.htm#AdaptiveServerEnterpriseNETDataProvider

Using C#

using Sybase.Data.AseClient;
...
AseConnection oAseConn = new AseConnection();
oAseConn.ConnectionString = "Data Source=(local);" +
                            "Initial Catalog=myDatabaseName;" +
                            "User ID=myUsername;" +
                            "Password=myPassword"
oAseConn.Open();


Using VB.NET
Imports System.Data.AseClient
...
Dim oAseConn As AseConnection = New AseConnection()
oAseConn.ConnectionString = "Data Source=(local);" & _
                            "Initial Catalog=myDatabaseName;" & _
                            "User ID=myUsername;" & _
                            "Password=myPassword"

Thank you.  It's definitely pointing me in the right direction.  I can see that I need to use ASE ADO.NET Data Provider, rather than OLE DB provider.  I'll look more into this.
