Looking for a 32-bit ODBC Driver for DB2 5.2

First we are running Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard, that won't change so we cannot use the provided driver from Microsoft for DB2.

We have an extremely old database system, DB2 5.2, that we are going to migrate to SQL.  I am looking for an ODBC driver I can run on a 64-bit operating system with SQL 2008.  Our client software is only 16-bit.  

Does anyone know where I can get a 32-bit driver or client that will support 5.2?  I have tried the 9.7 driver with Fix 8 and that does not work.

Thanks

There is a remote possibility that the DB2 UDB v7 client (we're talking about UDB, aren't we, not AS/400?) might work in your case. I recall there were plenty of DB2 v7 demo CDs around that you might be able to find on Ebay or Craigslist.

By the way, it might be easier (and cheaper) to migrate to the free DB2 Express-C than MS SQL Server.

We have SQL Server set up already.  This data on the DB2 system definitely has to be moved to the new SQL Server.  I am just looking for DB2 driver to use on the new server to move the data via SSIS.  The server is 64-bit, the client is only 16-bit.  

Doesn't IBM have an archive location?  Thanks for all the help.

I'm sure they do, but it's probably for internal consumption only. Try contacting IBM Software Support if you're eligible.
