Read / Edit ODBC 32bit settings

Recommended Posts

cookiemonster

Hi,

 

Im about to start making an autoit script that will read the current ODBC settings, have a drop down to select a different one which would then update the ODBC in windows to use the new settings.

Can anyone point me in the direction of how to read the ODBC 32 bit settings? are they in the registry?

Be extra careful with 32/64bit when working on 64bit systems :)  - from experience

      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,

      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?

      I would love to have some help or guidance 
      I am able to Query from my database but I am not able to Update or insert etc because I lack the knowledge for it
       
      this is my code for to retrieve some data from and works perfect
       
      Dim $ueberschriften = "" Dim $anzahl = 0 Dim $dsncount = 1 Global $DSN = "MTXXV5" Global $Query = "Select * from VIEWS" Func SSSQL($SSQuery) ;SuperSonicSQL     ConsoleWrite($SSQuery & @LF)     $cmboVal = ""     $adoCon = ObjCreate("ADODB.Connection")     $adoCon.Open($DSN)     $adoRs = ObjCreate("ADODB.Recordset")     $adoSQL = $SSQuery     $adoRs.CursorType = 2     $adoRs.LockType = 3     $adoRs.Open($adoSQL, $adoCon)     With $adoRs         Global $QueryAnswer = .GetRows     EndWith     Return $QueryAnswer EndFunc   ;==>SSSQL and this is my failed attempt, The Query is correct but I want to able to use it in autoit instead of have to manual update or insert into flamerobin
       
      $SS_SQL_Insert_or_Update = "INSERT INTO DETECTION (DNAME,DTYPE,WINNAME,AREA,COLOR,MOUSE) VALUES ('PopUpTradeInviteYes        s                    ','SEARCH','XXX','175,240,550,240,65,228,82,234','5062478','0') " Func SSSQLIU($SS_SQL_Insert_or_Update) ;SuperSonicSQL :P     $cmboVal = ""     $adoCon = ObjCreate("ADODB.Connection")     $adoCon.Open($DSN)     $adoRs = ObjCreate("ADODB.Record")     $adoSQL =$SS_SQL_Insert_or_Update ;~     $adoRs.CursorType = 2     $adoRs.LockType = 4     $adoRs.Open($adoSQL, $adoCon) ;~     With $adoRs ;~         Global $QueryAnswer = .GetRows ;~     EndWith ;~     Return $QueryAnswer EndFunc   ;==>SSSQL I am at a total loss and I am just trying this at random but I am also going to sleep now
      I would love to have some minor examples

      Hello all! I've been scouring the interwebs for a whiff of anybody else who's had this problem and come up empty. Here's the deal: I wrote a simple little script that I've used for months now quite successfully, but I'm also experiencing an error where the ODBC login window will pop up, garbage text will automatically dump into the username, password, and sometimes the source fields, and then it will automatically try to log in and cause it to fail. It's intermittent, and I have no idea what's causing it. It happens in databases that I've never automated, but it does exactly what the script I wrote should do except that it's garbage text being entered. I've attached the script I mentioned. I'd appreciate anything anybody can suggest or recommend. Thanks!

      I need to change/edit the password on a system dsn that uses sql authentication. I need to modify this  on 400 workstations. I wrote the following to change the password: 
       
      run("rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL odbccp32.cpl",@SystemDir,@SW_HIDE)
      winwait("ODBC Data Source Administrator")
      ControlCommand ( "ODBC Data Source Administrator", "", "SysTabControl321" , "tabright")
      Send("!c")
      winwait("Microsoft SQL Server DSN Configuration")
      WinWaitActive("Microsoft SQL Server DSN Configuration", "This wizard")
      Send("!n")
      WinWaitActive("Microsoft SQL Server DSN Configuration", "How should")
      Send("!P")
      sleep(100)
      send("newpassword")
      sleep(100)
      Send("!n")
      WinWaitActive("Microsoft SQL Server DSN Configuration", "")
      Send("!n")
      WinWaitActive("Microsoft SQL Server DSN Configuration", "&Change the language of SQL Server system messages to")
      Send("!c")
      Send("{ENTER}")
      winwait("ODBC Microsoft SQL Server Setup")
      send("!t")
      WinWaitActive("SQL Server ODBC Data Source Test", "Test Results")
      Send("{ENTER}")
      winwait("ODBC Microsoft SQL Server Setup")
      send("{TAB}")
      sleep(100)
      Send("{ENTER}")
      winwait("ODBC Data Source Administrator")
      Send("{ENTER}")
      My dilemma is that I have more than one system dsn. I cannot get to the right system dsn to edit (click the configure button). The editor does not show this list or text. How can I move to the right dsn to modify.
      This is for 3rd party software; I have to use sql authentication. Thanks to anyone that can help.
