Hi all,

I am currently making the move from SQL Server to MySQL and am having some problems.  Previously I have always used the SQL Server ODBC driver to create a DSN for use in my ASP scripts and I had planned to do the same for MySQL.  The only problem is the new stable release of MySQL (4.1.9) is incompatible with the current ODBC driver (3.51).  I have been told that this will be fixed in version 3.53 of the ODBC driver but obviously I cannot put everything on hold until then.

Can anyone profer a suitable ASP database connection script or solution ?  I have looked up 'DSNLESS' connections but all the ones I've found are still ODBC (thus still requiring an ODBC driver).
