  I have got a pervasive sql database with a table name
  A0001 but 4 different file names for instance
  A0001_01 ;A0001_02 ...
  The problem is that the file location is not linked
  when making the odbc connection
  Is it possible to define the location in VB6 ADO
  the reason for the different file name is for different
  company database's for company 1 file = a0001_01

  could enyone tell me how I could change the table location in VB6 prog using ADO and ODBC conection

    Kind regards


RE: .dat file location change

You're probably going to have to define multiple tables with the DDFs.  ODBC (with Pervasive.SQL 2000 and later) uses a DSN and a Database Name. The Database Name defines where (path-wise) the DDFs and data files are located.  Within the DDFs, the table name is linked to a specific file name (XF$LOC field in the X$FILE).
