ODBC Connection to Btrieve

ODBC Connection to Btrieve

ODBC Connection to Btrieve


I have just started a new job and have been thrown head-first in Btrieve 6.15 databases. I am trying to access tables from a remote database using ASP & VbScript. However, I have been unable to connect. I have installed Colibri ODBC driver for Btrieve and created a System DSN using this. I have been able to use the tools that come with the ODBC package ( namely Data Analyzer ) to access the data.

However, I have been unable to access the data through an ASP page running on PWS on my local machine ( NT Workstation ). Maybe my connection string is not right. Can someone out there please furninsh me with a VBScript Connection String for Btrieve or give me other suggestions as the best way to access Btrieve databases using ASP.

Thanks in advance,
