Pervasive connection String

Pervasive connection String

Pervasive connection String

Why connection to a pervasive DB using a DSN Connection string


Friend CW_Schedule As New OdbcConnection("DSN=SCHEDULE") 
many of the columns are empty, While if I use


Friend CW_Schedule As New OdbcConnection("Driver={Pervasive ODBC Client Interface};ServerName=;dbq=SCHEDULE;") 
All of the data is showing.
Thanks in advance.

RE: Pervasive connection String

What are the properties of the "Schedule" Data Source as shown in the ODBC Administrator? If you are getting different results with the same query between the two connection strings, the most likely reason is that the connection strings are pointing to different databases.


RE: Pervasive connection String

Actully there were tables with the same column names. When the columns were renamed then the data was correct.
