Solution to some ADODB.Connection problems for SQL Server

Recommended Posts

Tippex

I had a problem getting a connection to "SQL Server" on 64 bit PCs (running XP) even though 32 bit PCs connected easily.

Even compiling for 32bit was (initially) insufficient and to get it working at all on a 64bit PC, I ended up forcing its use of TCP/IP protocol by specifying a port number (that is apparently picked up as a default by 32 bit PCs once "SQL Server" has been added with it configured in "Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Databases(ODBC) --> Add --> SQL Server --> Client Configuration"

This worked for me on a 64bit PC, but only when compiled in 32bit:

$sqlCon = ObjCreate("ADODB.Connection")

$sqlCon.Open("DRIVER={SQL Server};SERVER=name.of.server,port_number;DATABASE=name_of_database;UID=logon_ID;PWD=password;")

If @error Then
 MsgBox(0, "Problem", "SQL Connection Failed")
Else
 MsgBox(0, "Success", "SQL Connection OK")
EndIf

Also, I found that the "SQL Server" needed to be added to the Databases(ODBC) as shown above (and tested OK) before the AutoIT script worked but (strangely) it could be later removed from Databases(ODBC) and it still worked (perhaps it just needed to setup defaults).

Does anyone know how I can get the above working when compiled in 64bit too?

On a X64 bit PC, the above script it will fail to work with:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=y

but works OK with

#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=n

Which version of the SQL driver do you have installed?

Have you tested this COM ODBC connection with VBscript or some other x64 software to establish it is really AutoIt3 giving the problem?

I have closed you bug report for now as I am not convinced this is an AutoIt3 issue.

It is a function of the bitness of the SQL Server ODBC component/driver that is installed. It looks like the 32-bit version of the SQL Server ODBC component/driver installed, and so, you must compile your script for a 32-bit executable. If the 64-bit version of the SQL Server ODBC component/driver was installed, then you would have to compile your script to a 64-bit executable - otherwise you would receive similar errors and it would not work if compiling to a 32-bit executable.

I think the link below, although it does not apply to straight SQL, it has a lot to explain.

      I have created this function for a database, but I can not make it work. I always have two error messages: "not an error" ... and the file created, in the script directory, does not contain anything.
      Global $sDBName = "Hen.db" Func DatabaseTable() Local $sConnDB _SQLite_Startup() If @error Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "SQLite Error", "SQLite.dll Can't be Loaded!") Exit -1 EndIf $sConnDB = _SQLite_Open($sDBName) If @error Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "SQLite Error", "Can't Load Database!") Exit -1 EndIf If Not _SQLite_Exec($sDBName, 'CREATE TABLE Animal ("Name", "Age");') = $SQLITE_OK Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "SQLite Error", _SQLite_ErrMsg()) If Not _SQLite_Exec($sDBName, 'INSERT INTO Animale VALUES ("Charlie","5");') = $SQLITE_OK Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "SQLite Error", _SQLite_ErrMsg()) _SQLite_Close($sConnDB) _SQLite_Shutdown() EndFunc

      Hi all,
      I hope you can help me with this. I need to connect to a Database using Cloudera ODBC Driver for Impala. I installed the driver, created a User DSN (drona2) and tested it successfully (got the message: Successfully connected to data source!) but when I try to connect to the database using a Conneciton String, it simply didn't work.
      I tried connecting to the database using the User DSN, I previously created, that has all parameters needed but got the following error:
           $ProviderDatasource = 'DSN=drona2;'
           $conn_Database = ObjCreate ("ADODB.Connection")
           $conn_Database.ConnectionString = $ProviderDatasource
           $conn_Database.Open
           ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
           $conn_Database.Open
           $conn_Database.Open^ ERROR
      Also I tried adding all parameters to my connection string as follows but also got the same error:
           $ProviderDatasource = 'Driver=Cloudera ODBC Driver for Impala;Host=MyHost.domain.com;PORT=21050;AuthMech=3;UID=MyUserId@domain.com;PWD=MyPasswordc;Schema=default;SSL=1;AllowSelfSignedCerts=1;AllowHostNameCNMismatch=1;CheckCertRevocation=1;KrbFQDN=_HOTS;KrbServiceName=impala;ServicePrincipalCanonicalization=1'
      I hope someone has used this driver successfully before and can shed some light here.
      If you need additional information, let me know.
      Regards,

      ..let's say I store in a mysql column "[1,2,11,12,123]".
      How can I make s query to get all those rows that is 1, or is 12, etc ?
      I'm using  mysqlnd 5.0.11-dev - 20120503 
      Any advise on what technique I should use is welcomed
      Thanks
      PS: ..I'm adding a comma to each end, as in  [,1,2,11,12,123,] and will search with like %,12,% .
      Not pretty but I'm in a hurry and can't come up with a better solution =/

      Question
      How to detect / determine if requested ODBC driver is not available? Not installed?  Is there a specific function / error code to check for?
      I asked this on the ADO.UDF support page, but I think the issue is not limited to that UDF.  What test can be run to determine if the requested ODBC data driver is available?

      Dear all,
      I already have a formula which will select doublicates, but sometimes there might be entries with additional information starting after "-", which I now want to trim away.
      Current formula is:
      Select DISTINCT a.title, a.oid, a.size, a.disk from DB a, DB b where (a.title like b.title and a.oid <> b.oid)" & $ActiveDisks_Filter & " AND (a.comment <> 'Delete' AND b.comment <> 'Delete') Order by a.title ASC, a.size DESC; testwise I want to add a simple solution like left, but afterwards I get an error but I do not know why.
      Select DISTINCT a.title, a.oid, a.size, a.disk from DB a, DB b where (left(a.title,15) like b.title and a.oid <> b.oid) Order by a.title ASC, a.size DESC; Error: near "(": syntax error: Finally I would like to insert intstr to search for "-" but currently I am not able to extend my current code =/
      Thanks a lot for your help.
      EDIT: hey, I managed it, left was not working also it was somehow shown that the tool knowed the comment. I did it now with substr+instr
      (substr(a.title, 1, instr(a.title, ' - '))
