    thanks bstjean for considering my mail.

    I thing u mean to ODBC is what I mentioned as myODBC.

    I have downloaded the ODBC driver provided by MYSQL from their website they call it as MyODBC 2.50.

    Thru which I have created Data Source Name (DSN) for the Database i have it in a server. It will provide the follwing details;

    DSN Name, UserId, Password.

    But to connect to COBOL we may need (i thing) additional informations as;
    Which server it will be accessed from? (my server)
    What protocol used for trasaction? (we may use HTTP)
    What are all the environmental settings to indicate it is MySQL?

    I want to know How we can give these details to COBOL ?

    if any one suggest for these details it'll be very help full for me...

    apa.
