I need to access data of a dbs-file. (SQL-Base Server 7.6.1)
I can't find an ODBC-Driver... but it has to exist one.
Can anyone help?

Thank you very much!

    Accepted Solution

    SQL Base supposedly supports

    OLE DB
    Pure Java (level 4) JDBC
    C/C++ (DLL and linked)
    Visual Basic and Delphi

    Have u looked at Gupta's website (Im assuming this is part of Gupta) -

    If u know the files, perhaps u can google it to try find those particular files (if u cant find on Gupta site)

    ok, got this from a website

    How do I connect to SQLBase with ODBC? What files do I need?"

                    First of all you need the ODBC driver for SQLBase: sqlbaseodbc.dll (8.1) or
          c2gup15.dll (7.6.1). You also need the client API for SQLBase, i.e. sqlwntm.dll
          and sqlngci.dll. To communicate with the server from the API you need a communication
          protocol, usually tcp/ip, i.e. sqlws32.dll. Finally you need to configure the
          sql.ini file so that - in this case - the tcp/ip protocol is loaded and the
          right serverpath is set.

          Note that sqlodb32.dll is Team Developers library for ODBC and not SQLBase
          ODBC driver.

    Thank you for your fast answer.
    I've already searched on gupta's website.
    It's just possible to download a driver's pack for version 9. (and I'm not able to use it with Version 7 I think)

    So I need to download c2gup15.dll and the others files anywhere in the web?
    theres nearly no result by googeling that word?!
    and no download?!?!

    I've found the drivers on an installation cd of multivers software.
    Multivers uses this database and packed a bundle of drivers on this cd.
    Thanks anyway for your help!
