pdssql.dll required, but I don't have it on my system??!!

pdssql.dll required, but I don't have it on my system??!!

pdssql.dll required, but I don't have it on my system??!!

(OP)
Trying to connect to a sql server db, and I get the error from my logonserver code line that it can't find pdssql.dll, and I don't have it on my system, but I guess I need it to run the sql server driver! Where can I get it from?!

Thanks,

J

RE: pdssql.dll required, but I don't have it on my system??!!

try this:
Report.Application.LogOnServer "p2ssql.dll", "server name", "database name", "user", "password"

RE: pdssql.dll required, but I don't have it on my system??!!

you need to install the sql server client in order for p2ssql.dll to work.  this is the native driver that Crystal reports provides.  p2ssql.dll is dependent on libraries installed by the sql server client.

RE: pdssql.dll required, but I don't have it on my system??!!

I believe that the p2* files are the 32-bit DLLs and the pd* files are the 16-bit DLLS, so you should always be using the p2* files.
