Thanks Philipp.

That solved the problem.

Is there actually a How-To on what to do as when I go to add a new
Datasource, I get the error

Error Type: NameError
Error Value: SQLDataSources

Thanks again for you answer

Subject: Re: [Zope] ODBC Connection


the ZmxODBC DA uses the Zope-independent product mxODBC, that provides a
generic
Python DB API compliant ODBC interface to Python.

ZmxODBC installs mxODBC into lib/python/Shared/mx. The problem is that this
path is not in the default PythonPath.

Solution:
move the mx directory from lib/python/Shared into a directory that's member
of PythonPath (for example lib/python).

Hi

I have a few customers who are using Zope and have shown an interest in
using the OpenLink ODBC Drivers. Unfortunately, I am not familiar with Zope
and wondered if there was a How-To that I can use to show me how to use Zope
with ODBC. I have downloaded the ZmxODBCDA module but when I select this
from the Products menu, it shows up as ZmxODBCDA(Broken product ZmxODBCA).
If I click on the link, I get


  File "D:\APPS\ZopeWeb\lib\python\OFS\Application.py", line 397, in
import_products
    product=__import__(pname, global_dict, global_dict, silly)
  File "D:\APPS\ZopeWeb\lib\python\Products\ZmxODBCDA\__init__.py", line 91,
in ?
    import DA
  File "D:\APPS\ZopeWeb\lib\python\Products\ZmxODBCDA\DA.py", line 92, in ?
    from db import DB, manage_ODBCDataSources
  File "D:\PROGRA~1\Zope22\lib\python\Products\ZmxODBCDA\db.py", line 87, in
?
ImportError: No module named mx.ODBC



Any ideas what's wrong here and secondly how I can go about making an ODBC
connection.

Thanks for you help in advance
