Pervasive ODBC Error

Pervasive ODBC Error

(OP)
We have a 3rd party app that "supposedly" can use ODBC to access Peachtree/Sage database info. Both Sage and the 3rd party vendor say the problem lies with the other party. I think I have found the problem, but I don't know anything really about Pervasive.

The error we get is [Pervasive][ODBC Client Interface][LNA][Pervasive][ODBC Engine Interface]Syntax Error: SELECT * FROM \\tha<<???>>-ts01\SAGE\PEACHTREE\company...

I think the problem may be that for some reason the "-" in the server path is throwing the error, but I can't get anyone to confirm this. Does anyone here know if this is the problem? The ODBC System DSN "test" fine and during the setup of the connection in the 3rd party program everything reads the database correctly. The problem just arises when the program queries Sage/Peachtree after the setup.

I have been chasing this error for 2 years and getting no where. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Just as reference, it appears the 3rd party app doesn't appear to have anyone on staff that we can talk to. They are apparently "too big" to care about one customer and we are kind of locked into them as the only people that support this type of connection to Sage/Peachtree.
