Query to Medisoft Database

I'm trying to establish a connection to Medisoft database using ODBC but I can not get a connection established. This is the command string I'm putting in my application:

ODBC;Server=HDCServer;DSN=MSPatient;User ID=user;Password=password;

The ODBC source is pointing to MWDDF.ADD

The error is that "the table is a database table, it can not be opened as a free table"

The ODBC driver is installed. Any ideas ?

Medisoft uses Sybase advantage database and hence your connection string should indicate whether the SERVERTYPE is LOCAL or REMOTE and change the connection string accordingly. Hope that's the reason you are getting above error.
Data Source=\\myserver\myvolume\mypat\mydd.add;User ID=myUsername;
More connection string options available for Sybase Advantage below.
