C# ODBC connection to DB2

Hello,
I am developing a c# application that reads from a number of DB2 files on an AS400 via ODBC.  The problem is that during development I don't have access to the DB2 database (ie No access to AS400) . Is there any way that I can "simulate" a DB2 environment so that when I swap over (eventually ) to a actual DB2 environment - that it will just require a change of DNS name ?

regards
Pat

Hi Pat,

The AS/400 drivers are different than the other ODBC drivers.  Simulating an AS/400 connection will be tough, at best.

You can install DB2/LUW on a desktop and connect to it with DB2 drivers, but they're not the same as the AS/400 drivers.  I don't know if it will be much help though.  :(

i believe that simple operations are done the same way across odbc drivers, otherwise, there would be no point in having a standard.
You can try to install the express edition on your machine, or even try to find odbc drivers that works on excel files / text files
