Multiple ODBC datasources

Multiple ODBC datasources

Multiple ODBC datasources

Hi I am fairly new to using WebFocus and have written a report that requires accessing two different ODBC datasources. One is a MS Access database the other is a database on a data warehouse.  I first access the MS Access database and create a hold file then have to access the data warehouse join the holdfile and a file from the warehouse and run a report.  The procedure runs until it tries to access the warehouse and I get a message saying I am not logon to the warehouse.  
Ho do I logoff from the first ODBC data source and logon to the second one within the procedue so I don't have to do it manually???

When multiple ODBC data sources are accessed simultaneously, the EDA Metadata Access File, which indicates where the ODBC data source is, must contain the SERVER= parameter. For example,
