All,

The title says it all.  I want to connect my Powerbuilder application to SQL Server 2000, DSN-less and using Windows authentication.  Can this be done and if so, how is it done?

Here is what I have tried...
SQLCA.DBMS = 'MSS MS SQL Server 6.x'
SQLCA.AutoCommit = TRUE
SQLCA.DBParm = "ConnectOption='SQL_INTEGRATED_SECURITY,SQL_IS_ON'"
SQLCA.logid = <myusername>
SQLCA.Database = <mydatabase>
SQLCA.ServerName = <myservername>

When I debug through this, it gives me the error, "login incorrect".  My username is in the SQL Server logins.  

Please advise!

Thanks!

My comes across liike this (note the DBParm option) in PB7:

// Profile local_auth
SQLCA.DBMS = "MSS Microsoft SQL Server 6.x"
SQLCA.Database = "local_dev"
SQLCA.LogPass = <*********>
SQLCA.ServerName = "DevServer"
SQLCA.LogId = "MYDOMAIN\My_Logon"
SQLCA.AutoCommit = True
SQLCA.DBParm = "Secure=1"

Also note, I'm using a domain logon for this SQL Server.
And also make sure that your username has been given access to the db [sorry, had to ;)  ]
