ODBC connection to the Peachtree 2007 database

ODBC connection to the Peachtree 2007 database

ODBC connection to the Peachtree 2007 database

Using the Windows XP ODBC Admin tool, I am able to connect to a sample database in Peachtree’s !_PDG directory.  When I try this in my own company I get a Login to screen, but it doesn't accept my Peachtree ID and password.  Trying to interface this with an outside software product.  

Peachtree uses Pervasive PSQL v9.1, so those are the drivers I want to use.

Any suggestions on how to make the ODBC connection to the Peachtree database is greatly appreciated.  

RE: ODBC connection to the Peachtree 2007 database

Been troubleshooting my WAMP on W2k Pro and Apache was working, but PHP was not.  Found I had not defined the "doc_root" in the php.ini file, so changed it.

Now I get 403 errors even on the root localhost.

httpd.conf reads:


ServerRoot "D:/Program Files/Apache/Apache2"
Listen 80
ServerName localhost
DirectoryIndex index.htm index.html index.html.var index.shtml index.php index.phml index.cfm index.cfml
DocumentRoot "D:/Program Files/Apache/Apache2/htdocs"
  Options FollowSymLinks
  AllowOverride None
UserDir "E:/Nyle's/Business Projects/Projects (External)"
# Config for PHP
LoadModule php5_module "D:/Program Files/PHP/php5apache2.dll"
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
PHPIniDir "D:/Program Files/PHP"
Action application/x-httpd-php "/php/php-cgi.exe"
ScriptAlias /php/ "D:/Program Files/PHP/"
AddHandler php-script .php .phml
AddHandler php .php .phml
<Directory "D:/Program Files/PHP">
  Allow from all
  Order allow,deny
  AllowOverride None

php.ini reads:


;include_path = ".;c:\php\includes"
doc_root = "D:/Program Files/Apache/Apache2/htdocs"
user_dir =
extension_dir = "./"

What do I need to look for or correct?  Do I need to match the user directories?

Install instructions at:


say I need to copy files into the Apache root directory, this is written for version 4 not 5.  Are these still good instructions?  What would change on these for version 5?

The trouble with Pawcom is it only orks with ACCESS.

RE: ODBC connection to the Peachtree 2007 database

Not true!  The PawCom library can be used with any programming environment that supports COM (Active-X) libraries.  That includes VB6, .NET, ASP(.NET), C++, Delphi, Visual Foxpro, and PHP.  However, PHP has some deficiencies in its COM support that need to be worked around.

PawCom comes with an extensive application in MS Access that demonstrates ways to work with the Peachtree data, but MS Access is NOT required.
