I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this. However, here goes.
I am using PB 7.0
I set up my database using the ODBC Data Source Administrator configuration
for Adaptive Server Anywhere (System DSN).
Then I created my profile. I tested the connection and it worked fine.
Then I went to Jaguar Manager, created the Connection Cache using the
database I just setup. I setup everything currectly including using the
odbc32.dll (Driver Tab)
I got this error when I pinged it:
