I am in the process of linking a Cache 5.2 db to an MSSQL 2000 or 2005 server(i can use either). however in the list of database providers there is no provider for Cache. Can some one tell me how to add it or a work around.

First of all there has to be an Cache OLE-DB or ODBC provider in order to be able to use it. As I checked it doesn't seem to be one, but I'm not sure. I found a website than can give consultance related to Cache db: http://www.henryelliott.com/cache.html

If there is no provider to use then you can't add the Cache DB as a linked server to SQL server. What you need is a method to transfer data feom the Cache server to SQL server either an ETL tool or just create a program to do that.

Zberteoc,
   Thanks for your help, the answer was to use the Cache ODBC driver, which i already had and then create a System DSN on the SQL server and then add a linked server using the "OLE DB provider for ODBC connections" provider.
