ODBC Connections with PowerBuilder
This is actually a follow up to my previous "PB5.0 Connection to Watcom
DB." We upgraded the PB libraries to 5.0.04 and were able to solve the
"The allocation of the connection handle failed" problem. However, the
"The command extension block could not be allocated" still happens when:
1) Start a PB application with an ODBC connection and leave it running.
2) Start and end a second PB application with an ODBC connection.
3) Repeat step 2 24 times.
4) When the second app is started the 25th time we get the "The command

...ODBC for PowerBuilder connecting to Oracle 8
I've got a legacy PB4 application on Win 95 and 3x clients that I haven't been
able to get to connect to an Oracle 8.0.5 database on Windows NT. PB4 isn't
working properly with SQL*Net 2.3.3, the client that comes on the Oracle 8 CD.
Would it be easier to use ODBC to connect than SQL*Net? Please advise.
Most PB4 apps are 16 bit, and I'm guessing that the SQL*NET you have installed
on that machine is 32 bit. You either need to (a) use a 32 bit version of
SQL*NET or (b) install the 16 bit version of SQL*NET. (I would recommend
the former of the two). Also, you need t...Connect to Access with Powerbuilder via ODBC
