Hello,

I am trying to connect to Sybase database using Visual C#.

Following is the code:

using Sybase.Data.AseClient;         //Error line
AseConnection oCon = new AseConnection();
oCon.ConnectionString="my connection string";
oCon.Open();

I get error on the first line: The type or namespace name 'Sybase' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

I think you will need to add a reference to the "Sybase.Data.AseClient.dll" assembly in your project.

What are you using to compile your application (e.g. Visual Studio 2005)?

All namespaces reside in a dll.
If your program uses objects from that namespace you must :

a) create a reference to the the dll
b) specify that it is to be used by adding :

using namespace;

at the top of the appropriate code files.

In Visual Studio this means right clicning on the project references node in the solution explorer pane and selecting "add reference".
The browse to find the dll and select and add it.

Ok. That helped me one step.

But the namespace I am looking for does not exist in the reference section.

You may need to install Sybase's Data Provider:

Or, you can select the Browse tab, and find the DLL that should be on your system.
