Hello ... I am looking at developing a VS 200x .net application and want to use DB2 as my datasource. I have been using ASNA's datagate for years (writting classes to retrieve my data). Is it possible to do the same thing using Client Access?? thanks gollnick

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes

Client Access provides an ODBC driver that VS.Net can use through ADO

Here is an article that discusses creating the connection string: http://www.betav.com/Files/Content/Articles/ConnectionStringt3.pdf

The driver will be: Driver={iSeries Access ODBC Driver}
-or- {Client Access ODBC Driver (32-bit)}

Here are some good resources from Microsoft: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms171886(VS.80).aspx

From IBM: http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/i/software/access/windows/dotnet/index.html

Good luck.
