ODBC Object Fails WIth Certain Methods

6 posts in this topic

Hi All,

 

I'm trying to connect to a MS SQL database through ODBC.  But the second line of code gives me an error. 

$oDatabase = objCreate("ADODB.Connection")
$oDatabase.Provider("SQLOLEDB")
$oDatabase.Open ("DSN=ABC;UID=Yes;Password=Sure")

When I take the second line out, I do not get an error message.   It doesn't seem to like the key word "Provider", as if it doesn't exist.  (I can find out the State of the object.  It returns that.)

Also, if I try something like...

$oDatabase.Execute("SELECT * FROM Table_Name")

...I also get the same error message.

The error message is "The requested action with this object has failed.:"

I feel like I'm missing an important step like including an external fle, or something along those lines.

Any help or a direction on where to find help would be appreciated.

Thank you!

I ended up saying screw it to the ".Provider" part, and just sent a connection string instead.  Et voila!  It worked. :)
