I have been tasked with connecting to an AS400 from an ASP.NET application. The AS/400 people are no help, they are like SQL what is that, ODBC? ADO? never heard of them.
So I Know nothing about the as400 but still need to connect to it. I tried adding this connection string to my web.config but got an error.
<add name="JDEConnection" connectionString="Provider=IBMDA400;Data Source=mysystem;User ID=myusername;Password=mypassword;" />
This gives me the folloring error:
System.ArgumentException: Keyword not supported: 'provider'.
Where do i go from here?
