DSN Connection Strings

 Keywords: List attributes keyname = value

Question:

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

Answer:

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] [|=]”
