Follow following steps:

1. Make sure you have installed the .Net Framework on your WebServer (IIS 5)

2. Also make sure your Sybase Server has the latest MDAC version 2.7. You can get this upgrade at:

3. You'll need to download the ODBC.Net Managed Provider (which by the way doesn't come with the .Net Framework). Install it on your web server. You can get this at:

4. Go to your - C:\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\Odbc.Net\  on your web server, and make sure that the "" file lives there.

5. Copy and paste this code into a new .aspx page.

<%@ Page CompilerOptions='/R:"C:\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\Odbc.Net\"' Debug="True"%>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Data" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="Microsoft.Data.Odbc" %>


<SCRIPT Language="VBScript" Runat="server">

Sub Page_Load(Source as object, e as EventArgs)

 Dim strconn as String = "Driver={Sybase System 11};srvr=saintlucia;Database=mydb;UID=angel;PWD=kyrah;"
 Dim conn as ODBCConnection = new ODBCConnection(strconn)
 Dim strSQL as string = "SELECT * FROM tblMangoes"
 Dim query as ODBCDataAdapter = New ODBCDataAdapter(strSQL, conn)

 Dim ds as Dataset = new DataSet()

 myDataGrid.DataSource = ds

End Sub

Have you ever worked with Sybase data warehouse? I've found the code connect to SQLServer data warehouse (using OLAP)
        ' Connect to the OLAP server
        Dim cn As New ADODB.Connection
        cn.Open("provider=msolap;data source=localhost")
        cn.DefaultDatabase = "Foodmart 2000"

but cannot found the same code for Sybase data warehouse. Do you have one?
