Accesing Pervasive Tables from MSQL

Accesing Pervasive Tables from MSQL

I need to be able to execute queries that use tables from both  Pervasive and Microsoft SQL databases. I have tried connecting to the pervasive database from MSQL using the following:

Select * From openrowset('PervasiveOLEDB','Provider=PervasiveOLEDB;Data Source=Fops;Location=Fops1','Select * From Order_Header') as A

Which returns the error:

Server: Msg 7303, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
Could not initialize data source object of OLE DB provider 'PervasiveOLEDB'.
[OLE/DB provider returned message: Errors occurred]
[OLE/DB provider returned message: Mode, Protection Level, or an unknown parameter has been set (incorrectly) in the connection string

The connection string works fine when used in a Visual Basic program.


RE: Accesing Pervasive Tables from MSQL

I don't believe you can use the PervasiveOLEDB provider as part of a linked server in MS SQL.  You should be able to switch to the ODBC driver and it should work.

RE: Accesing Pervasive Tables from MSQL

Could you help us out with an example, please. I have Have setup a DSN on the server and tried to use this as the source I still could not get it to work.

RE: Accesing Pervasive Tables from MSQL

You could try:
Select * From openrowset('MSDASQL','Provider=MSDASQL.1;Data Source=Fops','Select * From Order_Header') as A

where the ODBC DSN is named Fops.
