TopSpeed Db and Lotus Notes ODBC

TopSpeed Db and Lotus Notes ODBC

TopSpeed Db and Lotus Notes ODBC

We have a program commercially written using topspeed. Using MS Access to write SQL and using the ODBC drivers was OK for simple 'select * from tablename' type queries which are really no good to anyone.  Anything more complex from Lotus Notes seems to have kittens.  

I have found that for Crystal reports the default SQL syntax is incorrect.  Is there a similar problem with Lotus Notes and how do I fix it.

Thanks in advance for your fixes


RE: TopSpeed Db and Lotus Notes ODBC

Please help me too Gordon.

I have a working MS Access\VBA program that I want to use the data from a clarion file.  My normal method is to output a delimited file that I import into the necessary tables in MS Access.  I have not found a way to do this that creates a clean file without any extra bad characters.

My next thought is that I would like to use an ODBC type of connection.  The only problem is that the files are not a .TPS extension.  It is a .DAT.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.
