ACCPac ODBC Professional

ACCPac ODBC Professional

ACCPac ODBC Professional

(OP)
I want to create a link between Access97 and AccPac plus to keep data current between our internal membership database and AccPac.  I have contacted our AccPac representative and they told me about ODBC Professional for AccPac, but the cost was outrageous! ($800+)  Is there another alternative that allows me read/write access?

RE: ACCPac ODBC Professional

What is the database type for ACCPAC?  MS SQL, Pervasive, or what?

I know its not MS SQL we are using ACCPac Plus for dos, I do not know the database type - how do I find that out?

RE: ACCPac ODBC Professional

Ask your ACCPAC dealer.  

I believe it is Pervasive.  Do you ever see a Pervasive window open up when you log into ACCPAC?

I did call our AccPac rep and the version we are using is AccPac Plus ver. 6.5 for dos.  Its using its own proprietary database format.

RE: ACCPac ODBC Professional

I think you are out of luck , unless you upgrade. You can only access the data using a accpac solution with the dos version

tmah,

I was afraid of that answer.  I was just hoping that somebody out there didn't want to pay that high price either and just developed their own stuff.  Thanks for your reply.
