Editing ODBC Database definition

Editing ODBC Database definition

Editing ODBC Database definition

(OP)
I have set up a System DSN using the Pervasive ODBC Engine Interface in Pervasive SQL 8.6.

In the "Database" frame of the Pervasive ODBC Engine DSN Setup window, there is a drop-down list box showing the database name, and a "Create" button allowing me to create a new database [definition].  Having created quite a few such definitions over time, I can find no way to edit or delete them so they just accumulate.

Can anybody advise me how to get rid of the ones I no longer want and/or to edit the existing ones?

In the same window there is also a Help button, but it does not seem to answer this question.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

RE: Editing ODBC Database definition

To edit Database Names (not ODBC DSNs), you'll need to open the PCC and right click the COnfiguration node for the engine and select "Maintain Named Databases".  You'll be able to modify, delete, and add Database Names there.

RE: Editing ODBC Database definition

Using PCC version 8.60.192.030, I don't have any option on any engine that says "Maintain Named Databases".  What am I missing?

RE: Editing ODBC Database definition

It's under the "COnfiguration" node for the engine.
