ASP and MySQL Error

We have a legacy service in house which still runs on ASP. It currently uses MySQL 4.1.22. Although we intend to upgrade from ASP eventually that is some time away. In the meantime I need to abandon the old MySQL server and move to 5.5.33. However we are hitting problems.

Using the connection string:-

conMySQLTest_STRING = "Driver={MySQL ODBC 5.1 Driver};Server=Hostaddress;Port=3306;Option=16387;Database=DBName;UID=User;pwd=Password;"

Open in new window


.. when I change the credentials and point it to the 5.5.3 server the code fails at the last line of:-

Dim rsManageGroups
Dim rsManageGroups_cmd
Dim rsManageGroups_numRows

Set rsManageGroups_cmd = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Command")
rsManageGroups_cmd.ActiveConnection = conMySQLTest_STRING
rsManageGroups_cmd.CommandText = strSQLString
rsManageGroups_cmd.Prepared = true
Set rsManageGroups = rsManageGroups_cmd.Execute

Open in new window


It goes without saying that all works fine and dandy when I re-point the connection string to the old 4.1.22 MySQL server. I have checked that it is not a password/user/host/dbname typo causing it.

Can anyone advise me what I need to change?

Change your current password to anything else and revert back to the old password (if u want).

Thanks for the prompt reply. However I'm not sure what you are suggesting. As I say above this is definitely not a password issue. Perhaps I misunderstand; What are you suggesting?

Bingo!

Here was I tearing my hair out and hadn't had the common sense to check the SQL. It is actually dynamic in the form:-

SELECT * FROM Hosting.Groups WHERE GroupName NOT LIKE ...

For some reason the 5.5 MySQL server doesn't like the DB.Table form so changing it to:-

SELECT * FROM Groups WHERE GroupName NOT LIKE ...

... got me up and running in seconds. Many Thanks. All I have to contend with now is my feeling of stupidity :)
