We have a Powerbuilder 4.0 application that used to run on SQL Server 7.0. Recently, we migrated our database to SQL Server 2000. We can do ODBC and can connect to the database from any tools such as Access, Excel and register the new SQL Server 2000 to other SQL Server, but when we try to use the client application, the user can not connect to the database. We receive the error message as the subject line. The user interface opens up but there is no data. The orginal program was written in Powerbuilder 4.0 by our vendor who probably does not have a copy of the source codes in proper state as I understand from talking to them. My question is, is there something that I can do to help my user connect to the database by using the client interface? This is getting a bit frustrating as no one really has an answer for it. I tried to install Powerbuilder 9.0 just to see if that updates any driver file that my machine has and that would be recongnize by the client programs, but it will not.
What can we do or what suggestions anyone can extend? Thanks for any inputs.
Yes I knew that, but since this is a Powerbuilder-client app with SQL Server backend, I have known that there are problems with the 16 bit ODBC driver that Powerbuilder used in their earlier version which is what the client app is built on, that is Powerbuilder Version 4.0 and that is exactly why I thought of asking in this forum to see if someone may have a related answer to that. But thanks for your reply.
I think I've seen this error before when a variable or column is unable toa accept a value submitted to it. Is there a procedure that runs when the user logs in, and are there any parameters passed to the procedure?
