Good question. I'm not exactly sure where I got this version - I can't remember if I've reinstalled the drivers or not. I did get a .dll from IBM a while back (when I had similar problems). That could be where I got it.
I keep thinking there was something else that might have caused that error but I can't quite put my finger on it. I do remember having trouble with files that have 'concatenated keys' using the '*' - I think that is why IBM sent me the .dll. Have you tried connecting to the demo account - perhaps it is something in your setup that you have missed.... hth -- Colin Alfke Calgary, Alberta Canada "Just because something isn't broken doesn't mean that you can't fix it" Stu Pickles >-----Original Message----- >From: Dave Tabor [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] >Sent: Wednesday, February 18, 2004 5:55 AM >To: U2 Users Discussion List >Subject: RE: Unidata ODBC initial setup error - Run out of ideas!!! > > >Hmmm... > >I downloaded the complete Unidata 6.0 Personal Edition to my >PC, uninstalled the old Unidata ODBC driver, installed the NEW >Unidata ODBC driver, and retried.
