DSN Connection Strings

 Keywords: List attributes keyname = value


How do I determine what connection strings to use in my qConfigData function?


It depends upon your ODBC driver. First, look in the help file for your driver.

The connection string is made up of a number of attributes that specify how a driver connects to a data source. An attribute identifies a specific piece of information that the driver needs to know before it can make the appropriate data source connection. Each driver may have a different set of attributes but the connection string format is always the same. A connection string has the following format:

“DSN=data-source-name[|CONNECTSTRING=value] [|PWD=value] [|UID=value] [|=]”
