I need to connect to an AS400 database base and run a query from my web application....

Can anyone offer a suggestion on the best way to connect to a 400 using VB.NET?

I assume this can be done using ODBC but I dont know how.....plus I would prefer a quicker method if one exists.

Thanks!

If you can install software on the server, Client Access comes with the iSeries .NET Data Provider that makes accessing data and programs easy.
