Solution to some ADODB.Connection problems for SQL Server

Recommended Posts

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 will relay on this database in my examples.

      Hello,
      I would like a query to know if an entry exists
      Thank you in advance.
      $sQuery = "SELECT Alger FROM garage where auto='BL1879'" $result1 = $result.Fields("Alger").Value if $result1="" Then MsgBox(0, "ERROR", "BAD not exist") Else MsgBox(0, "Success!", "OK exist") EndIf Exit

      Hi everyone,
      I am trying to make a script that runs a query and show it to me to see if everything is right and then decide if I finish it or not so I made a little script as below :
      #include <ADO.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> _ADO_EVENTS_SetUp(True) _ADO_ComErrorHandler_UserFunction(_ADO_COMErrorHandler) Local $sDriver = 'SQL Server' Local $sDatabase = 'DataBase' ; change this string to YourDatabaseName Local $sServer = 'Localhost' ; change this string to YourServerLocation Local $sConnectionString = 'DRIVER={' & $sDriver & '};SERVER=' & $sServer & ';DATABASE=' & $sDatabase & ';UID=' & ';PWD=' & ';' ;~ Global $Query = _ ;~ "BEGIN TRAN" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "UPDATE Table" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "SET HOUR = 4" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "SELECT * FROM Table" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "ROLLBACK TRAN" Global $Query = _ "BEGIN TRAN" & @CRLF & _ "SELECT * FROM Table" & @CRLF & _ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ "ROLLBACK TRAN" _Query_Display($sConnectionString, $Query) Func _Query_Display($sConnectionString, $sQUERY) ; Create connection object Local $oConnection = _ADO_Connection_Create() ; Open connection with $sConnectionString _ADO_Connection_OpenConString($oConnection, $sConnectionString) If @error Then Return SetError(@error, @extended, $ADO_RET_FAILURE) ; Executing some query directly to Array of Arrays (instead to $oRecordset) Local $aRecordset = _ADO_Execute($oConnection, $sQUERY, True) ; Clean Up _ADO_Connection_Close($oConnection) $oConnection = Null ; Display Array Content with column names as headers _ADO_Recordset_Display($aRecordset, 'Query Result') EndFunc ;==> _Query_Display When I ran this script it works great, but when I run the query below :
      Global $Query = _ "BEGIN TRAN" & @CRLF & _ "UPDATE Table" & @CRLF & _ "SET HOUR = 4" & @CRLF & _ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ "SELECT * FROM Table" & @CRLF & _ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ "ROLLBACK TRAN" It doesn't show anything, when I take those begin and rollback it does what it should but still not showing me anything at all, is there a way around it that you know of?
      Thank you.

      Hello Guys,
       
      I am running the Ado example script, if I run this line, it runs without errors :
      Local $sConnectionString = 'DRIVER={' & $sDriver & '};SERVER=' & $sServer & ';DATABASE=' & $sDatabase & ';UID=' & $sUser & ';PWD=' & $sPassword & ';' But when I try the windows auth one , it failed everytime :
      Func _Example_MSSQL_WindowsAuthorization() Local $sDatabase = 'AdventureWorks2016' Local $sServer = 'SQLSRV' _Example_5_MSSQL_WinAuth($sServer, $sDatabase, "Select * from Person.Address") EndFunc here is the error :
       
      ADO.au3 v.2.1.16 BETA (1204) : ==> COM Error intercepted !
      $oADO_Error.description is:     Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed.
      $oADO_Error.windescription:     Exception occurred.
      $oADO_Error.number is:     80020009
      $oADO_Error.lastdllerror is:     0
      $oADO_Error.scriptline is:     1204
      $oADO_Error.source is:     ADODB.Connection
      $oADO_Error.helpfile is:     C:\Windows\HELP\ADO270.CHM
      $oADO_Error.helpcontext is:     1240655
      By the way, I have 64x windows server 2016 with SQL Server , I already installed the odbc my sql connector, any thought on this will be greatly appreciate it.

      $sQueryUpdateTime = "select intUpdateTime from tblStudies " . $where . " ORDER BY intUpdateTime DESC limit 1"; $rs = mysqli_query($conn, $sQueryUpdateTime); $row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($rs); the above used to take 300+ ms. to query. Then I set it as index and takes 30 ms. Cool.
      $sQuery = "select * from tblStudies " . $where . " ORDER BY StudyDate DESC limit $offset,$rows"; // takes 30 ms. on the indexed int $sQuery = "select * from tblStudies " . $where . " ORDER BY StudyDate DESC , PatientName ASC limit $offset,$rows"; // takes 300 ms. due to "PatientName" been a text field, even as I did index it So my observation is that "PatientName" takes a long time to sort, even tho "$rows = 20". Sorting text in 20 rows should be fast.
      ..tho, I find that any 2nd argument in the ORDER BY is just slow.
      Is there a way to query this in a way to have a faster result back ?
      Thanks
      PS: added ADD INDEX `StudyDate_2` (`StudyDate`, `PatientBirthDate`) USING BTREE;  and searched by those two with not much speed change ( StudyDate and PatientBirthDate are integer ).
