ODBC configuration problem

Post by narasareddykr » 10 May 2012, 04:47

Hi All,

I have install the team developer 5.1 version in WINDOWS 7, and install the MY SQL server 5.5 and ODBC driver installation.

I went to the control pannel --> administrative tools --> ODBC connection and configure the ODBC and tested, the message shows connection successfully.

I went to the sql.ini in team developer and added the below code.

remoredatabase=test, DNS=test;

Created the new application in Centura with
set database = 'test'
set user = 'root'
set password = 'sysadm'
call sqlconnect( hsqlconnect )

and run the application i am receving the error message "Couldn't connect the database".

Please help on this how to configure the ODBC connection in teamdeveloper 5.1 with windows 7.

Thanks all

Do you have an entry "comdll=sqlodb32" in section "[win32client.dll]"? If I remember correctly, that entry must be the first, before any other entry (such as sqlws32).

Assuming that "remoredatabase" and "odbccrtr" are just typos and you really have put "remotedbname" and "odbcrtr": We also have the server in the remotedbname: "remotedbname=test,DNS=test,server=mysqltestserver" (no semicolon either).

Assuming again, that you really have SqlDatabase, SqlUser and SqlPassword: You can also try to connect using SqlTalk. There, you can check, which sql.ini file is used (Menu Help -> About SQLTalk for Windows -> Config File) and if you're editing the right one.
Can you connect using the MySQL Command Line client?

HTH, clem

Make sure you're using the 32 bit ODBC driver - 64 bit won't work.

CLEMDOC: Thanks for your reply earlier, but just to clarify what you wrote a bit about the sqlodb32 comdll order. Here's this section in question in my SQL.INI file with all comdll= uncommented, but the important parts I'll put in bold:

; order of win32client dll's is important when connecting to multiple databases.
; sqlws32 should always be the last and sqlodb32 be 2nd last.

I don't believe the order of any of the other uncommented listings matters, as long as sqlodb32 = 2nd to last, sqlws32 (SQLBase & SQL/API) is last.

Oh, and 2 further points as long as I'm thinking of it -- both have been 'gotchas' with other users and their edited INIs:
1 -- I recall there should be no spaces in any of those entries. "comdll = sqlws32" would be wrong.

2 -- Some users don't install SQLBase so think they can comment out the last entry, which is always UNcommented in SQL.INI when TD is installed.
This is wrong! "comdll=sqlws32" must be last and be UNcommented, even if you don't connect to SQLBase. Why? Because that's needed for the router to call the SQL/API functions for other DB brands even if no SQLBase DB.
