Hi,

I am trying to upgrade my connection from ODBC to MySql Connector/NET and I am getting this error message:

MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection is not defined

I have added the name space so i am confused by this error.

Could it be that I have an older version of IIS and this namespace is not on my developemnt PC?

Thanks

Did you add a reference to the dll ?
Did you add the using or import-statement on top of your class, page, ...

The steps that you need to take are as follows....

1) Install the MySql Connector
2) Add a reference to the MySql.Data.dll in your project
3) Add either a using or Import Statement to your code
4) From there you should be able to reference the MySql objects.

3) I added the import on the page and in the config file

Actually i think that i have got it, I added a bin folder to my app and added the MySql.Data.dll file to it.

I was also looking on this website for help too.
