SQLRouter/ODBC-Debug using SQL2k client app Sorry, Logfile could not be opened. File status = 5

The above error is displayed in a dialog box on a particular users machine, and her machine only, when she uses anything in this particular app that seems to require a DB connection.

The error is not fatal and she does get the required functionality after dismissing dialog box.

Where would I find ODBC logging? The only place I can find any type of ODBC logging on the local system is where ODBC can trace. Is that what you were referring to?
