Import btr files & establish odbc conn with Pervasive SQL Data manager

Import btr files & establish odbc conn with Pervasive SQL Data manager

Import btr files & establish odbc conn with Pervasive SQL Data manager

(OP)
Hi All,

I'm totally new with Pervasive Btrieve. I need to know how do I establish an odbc connection with the data manager and import bunch btr files without defining their table structures. Is this possible?  Right now when I log into
sql data manger, it doesn't have any database to which I can connect to, I believe it's a stand alone data manager.

I would be greatful of any help or advice.

Thank you,
Wendy  

RE: Import btr files & establish odbc conn with Pervasive SQL Data manager

In order to use ODBC you will need to create the DDF files.  These are file.ddf, field.ddf and index.ddf.  Without these you will not be able to use ODBC.  You might try and contact the program vendor to see if they will provide or you can check out BtSearch32 at www.nssdd.com as it can help you analyze the structure and build the DDF files.
