    Unanswered: using vb script to connect to informix

    HI all.

    I'm just starting out in scripting and I'm having a lil problem. I'm trying to connect to an informix db, using vbs, to pull data and I'm receive the error "ODBC driver does not support the requested properties". I've tried googling, but this (scripting) is still very foreign to me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Here's my code:

    Dim Conn
    Set Conn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    Conn.Open "Driver={IBM INFORMIX ODBC DRIVER};Server=****;Database=****;Trusted_Connecti on=Yes;"

    Dim sql
    sql = "SELECT priority, insurance,patkey FROM tablename where patkey=######"

    Dim rs
    Set rs= CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")
    rs.Open sql, conn, 2, 3

    Dim str
    If Not rs.EOF Then
    str = "Patkey=" & rs(0) & ", Priority=" & rs(1) & ", InsCo=" & rs(2) & vbCrLf
    End If

    Set rs = nothing

    Set conn = nothing

    GetPatient = str

    msgbox GetPatient

    Also, the error is happening on line 11, char 9.

    Thanks again.

    Here's code I use to connect to a data source via vb script (for others looking at these posts.)

    Set WSNet = CreateObject("WScript.Network")

    varUserName = WSNet.UserName

    Set WSNet = Nothing

    Set MyConn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    Set RS = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset") = "DRIVER={SQL Server};"_
    & "SERVER=SQLSERVER;"_ <- sql server name = SQLSERVER
    & "DATABASE=PKTime;"_ <- db name on sql server = PKTime
    & "OPTION=35;"

    sql_query = "UPDATE dbo.Users SET LoginStatus ='" & "LoggedOut" & "' WHERE LoginID ='" & varUserName & "'" <- for the WriteUserLogOut.vbs
    sql_query = "UPDATE dbo.Users SET LoginStatus ='" & "LoggedIn" & "' WHERE LoginID ='" & varUserName & "'" <- for the WriteUserLogIn.vbs
    'ex: sql_query = "UPDATE dbo.Users SET LoginStatus ='" & "LoggedIn" & "' WHERE LoginID ='" & "PaulK" & "'"

    MyConn.Execute sql_query

    Set RS = Nothing
    Set MyConn = Nothing

    Thanks pkstormy.

    I have another question, if you don't mind?

    Any idea on how to pass an ahk variable to use within the vbs code? I'm trying to use parsed data and update fields within the db table using those ahk values in vbscript.

    Currently have:

    WS_Eval(theValue, "InsPlanExists(#####, "#####"")")

    Want to have:

    WS_Eval(theValue, "InsPlanExists(*variable from ahk*, "*another variable from ahk*")")

    If you answer, GREAT; and Thank You. If not, Thanks anyway for taking the time out to respond ealier.
