informix connection

Recommended Posts


Hi everybody,

I would like to connect to an informix db. I've installed an informix odbc connect driver and configured a dsn entry, but I don't know how to connect to this db. I've read that this is possible with connection strings, but is there not an easier way using the dsn entry ?

Thanks !

Something like this :

; Informix

$objConn = ObjCreate("ADODB.Connection")

$objConn.Open ("Dsn=myDsn;" & _
           "Host=myHostname;" & _
           "Server=myServerName;" & _
           "Service=myServiceName;" & _
           "Protocol=onsoctcp;" & _
           "Database=myDbName;" & _
           "Uid=myUsername;" & _

$rsCustomers = $objConn.Execute("SELECT * FROM Customers")
With $rsCustomers
    While Not .EOF
        ConsoleWrite(.Fields("CustomerID").Value & " - " & .Fields("CompanyName").Value & @LF)
