Access ODBC connection

Part of the funtionality in the app I'm building is connecting to a
remote Access database and retrieving monthly billing data.  In
configuring the ODBC connection, I had to use the 'User DSN' tab rather
than the 'System DSN' tab.  This limits who can login to my app and
successfully get the data from Access.  Only the user the ODBC
connection is configured for is able to do it.  PowerBuilder just didn't
recognize the connection if it wasn't a User DSN.  Is this a limitation
I just have to live with?  Or is there a workaround?  Thanks for any
help in advance,

This may be more than you want to see, but we successfully connect to Access
databases using the ODBC System DSN tab.  My understanding of this evolved
from first using just the User DSN definition, to using both, to finally
just using the System DSN tab.  As I recall, there was basically no
difference whatsoever from the PowerBuilder end of things.

Following is the InstallShield code for creating the registry entries for
our database.  The first three are for our application, the remainder is the
equivalent of what the ODBC Administrator puts in place.  Entries under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE are in the System DSN Tab.  User DSN puts them under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER.  After that, I have the PowerBuilder code where we
actually connect.  (Note: we swap this app back and forth between Access and
MS SQL Server - I hope that I haven' t left anything in here from the SQL
Server connection that may confuse.)  I hope this helps!


InstallShield code:

    RegDBSetKeyValueEx("SOFTWARE\\PSC\\WEGSARS Ver 2\\Water_Database",
"Database", REGDB_STRING, "Water_ARS", -1);
    RegDBSetKeyValueEx("SOFTWARE\\PSC\\WEGSARS Ver 2\\Water_Database",
    RegDBSetKeyValueEx("SOFTWARE\\PSC\\WEGSARS Ver 2\\Water_Database",
"DBParm", REGDB_STRING, "ConnectString='DSN=Water_ARS;'", -1);

    RegDBSetKeyValueEx("SOFTWARE\\ODBC\\odbc.ini\\Water_ARS", "DBQ",
REGDB_STRING, svDATADir^"WaterARS.mdb", -1);
    RegDBSetKeyValueEx("SOFTWARE\\ODBC\\odbc.ini\\Water_ARS", "Driver",
REGDB_STRING, WINSYSDIR^"odbcjt32.dll", -1);
    RegDBSetKeyValueEx("SOFTWARE\\ODBC\\odbc.ini\\Water_ARS", "DriverID",
REGDB_NUMBER, "25", -1);
    RegDBSetKeyValueEx("SOFTWARE\\ODBC\\odbc.ini\\Water_ARS", "FIL",
REGDB_STRING, "MS Access;", -1);
    RegDBSetKeyValueEx("SOFTWARE\\ODBC\\odbc.ini\\Water_ARS", "UID",
REGDB_STRING, "admin", -1);
"SafeTransactions", REGDB_NUMBER, "0", -1);
    RegDBCreateKeyEx("SOFTWARE\\ODBC\\odbc.ini\\Water_ARS\\Engines", "");
"ImplicitCommitSync", REGDB_STRING, "Yes", -1);
"MaxBufferSize", REGDB_NUMBER, "512", -1);
"PageTimeout", REGDB_NUMBER, "5", -1);
"Threads", REGDB_NUMBER, "3", -1);
"UserCommitSync", REGDB_STRING, "Yes", -1);

PowerBuilder code:

string ls_regsection

IF IsValid ( gnv_app ) THEN
 ls_regsection = gnv_app.of_getregkeysection () + "Water_Database"

 SQLCA = CREATE transaction
 SQLCA.AutoCommit = FALSE

RegistryGet(ls_regsection,"DBMS", SQLCA.DBMS)

 SQLCA.ServerName = "ACCESS"
 SQLCA.LogID = gs_user

Client Connections and PowerBuilder connections
What do I need to do to my NT box to be able to run a browser from a client machine to run the demo database/tutorial? I am able to run the demo from the NT server itself, but would like to test client connectivity. My client has browser capability. Furthermore, I am anticipating on using Jaguar as a middle tier for accepting communications from PowerBuilder. Jaguar would then take the SQL and pass the information onto a SYBASE SQL Server. I am not even concerned with any of the business logic that may be involved but am more interested in getting Jaguar to be a middle tier while...

Powerbuilder connection to MS Access using ODBC on XP
My Powerbuilder app currently connects correctly to an MS Access db to import data using ODBC on an NT platform. We are upgrading to XP and the connection fails. I get this error message : "DBMS ODBC is not supported in your current installation" I think that it may need a .dll for XP in order to connect. Any help would be great.

Access a TCP connection from an HTTP server connection?
I have two Component::Server::TCP servers running (A and B). Server B needs to write to a connection on server A. A's connections have a unique md5 id assigned to their heap. B should located a connection on A based on it's unique id, then write some data to it. I'm able to locate the server as follows: $server = $poe_kernel->alias_resolve('tcp_server'); I'd then planned to do something equivalent to the following: foreach my $conn ($server->getConnections()) { if ($conn->{heap}->{'uniqueID'} eq $requestedID) { $c...
