Hi Mirtheil

I've searched on the net and tried this:

exec sp_addlinkedserver @server='PSQLDEMODATAODBC',
@srvproduct='',@provider='MSDASQL', @datasrc='Demodata',
@location='',@provstr='DBQ=Demodata;Driver=c:\pvsw\bin\w3odbcci.dll'


but I get the following message: Error 7399: OLE DB Provider 'MSDASQL' Reported an error."

RE: Link Server Example Pls

Try:
sp_addlinkedserver 'PSQLDEMODATAODBC', ' ', 'MSDASQL', 'DEMODATA'
When you specify the "MSDASQL", you don't need the providerstring or location values.

RE: Link Server Example Pls

Hi Mirtheil,

After I created the linked server I wanted to test out some simple queries on the database.

I looked to the net for more help and it led me to perform the sp_catalogs to get the name of the db I'm connecting to:

sp_catalogs @server_name = 'DEMODATA'

I executed it and got the following error message:

Server: Msg 7399, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_catalogs, Line 4
OLE DB provider 'UNKNOWN' reported an error. One or more arguments were reported invalid by the provider.
[OLE/DB provider returned message: The parameter is incorrect.]
[OLE/DB provider returned message: [Pervasive][ODBC Client Interface][LNA][Pervasive][ODBC Engine Interface]Driver not capable.]

From the error message it looks bad... "Driver Not Capable" Is it a simple thing that I'm missing, ie downloading a driver or a syntax issue, or something more complicated?

If you want to know which version I'm running, on the About for the Control Center it States 7.82.198.004

Thanks,

-d
