    Re: VB connect to Sybase Problem

    First off here are some ODBC connection strings using Sybase, following is some VB code to connect using one of these connection strings to your database:

    If using the Sybase System 12 (or 12.5) Enterprise Open Client ODBC Driver

    oConn.Open "Driver={SYBASE ASE ODBC Driver};" & _
    "Srvr=myServerName;" & _
    "Uid=myUsername;" & _

    If using the Sybase System 11 ODBC Driver

    oConn.Open "Driver={SYBASE SYSTEM 11};" & _
    "Srvr=myServerName;" & _
    "Uid=myUsername;" & _

    If using the Intersolv 3.10 Sybase ODBC Driver

    oConn.Open "Driver={INTERSOLV 3.10 32-BIT Sybase};" & _
    "Srvr=myServerName;" & _
    "Uid=myUsername;" & _
    Dim cn as ADODB.Connection
    Dim rs as ADODB.Recordset

    Set cn = new ADODB.Connection

    cn.ConnectionString = "Driver={SYBASE ASE ODBC Driver};" & _
    "Srvr=myServerName;" & _
    "Uid=myUsername;" & _

    set rs = new ADODB.recordset

    rs.ActiveConnection = cn

    rs.Open "SELECT * FROM Table1"



    Set rs=Nothing
    Set cn = Nothing
