Hello,

I have a VB6 app that is generating Crystal Reports.  I have to automatically on form load create an ODBC connection to a ProvideX database.  I know the SQL syntax, but does anyone know the syntax for Providex?

This is HUGE for me if there is an answer!!

Many thanks!

Eric

Or possibly with some more parms

cn.Open "Driver={ProvideX 32-Bit ODBC Driver};Directory=\\MAS200;UID=XXX;PWD=XXX;Company=XXX;CacheSize=10;KeyRestrict=1;DirtyReads=0;BurstMode=1;SERVER=10.0.0.11"

Thanks for your posts!  This is for making a direct connection, right?  If a Crystal Report is using a specific ODBC connection, don't I have to have the ODBC connection defined on the PC to run the report?

Yes, that is my understanding.  All the details to make the connection are specified in the program.
