I have a Sysbase Anywhere DB and tables that works nicely on the Win98 platform it was designed on. However, I have been trying to get it to work on an XP platform with no success; I do not have a copy of the old Sybase that was used to develop the tables, so I downloaded the 30 day trial of SQL Anywhere Studio hoping that I could get the old database stuff to work with Win XP before deciding whether to purchase or go for a less costly PC based RDBMS such as FlieMaker Pro, Paradox, Access, etc.
When trying to access the DB, I get the following message: "Data source name not found and no default driver specified. Unable to connect: SLQSTATE=IM002."
So how do I get the downloaded program to work with the old data? Simplify everything as my last DB experience was with Paradox back in the early-mid 80's.
