zuma53:

It might be permissions, but I think I'd suspect your ODBC data source definitions first. Are they system-level or user level?

I get around that problem by explicitly giving DBD::ODBC the parameters for the database, rather than relying on a DSN definition. I don't recall the particulars, but thanks to [www://connectionstrings.com] they're pretty easy to find. Your connect string could boil down to something like this:

my $DB = DBI::connect("DBD:ODBC:driver={ABCD};Server=ServerIPAddress;" ."User ID=yourUserName;Password=Password");

To get the text for the ABCD slot, go into the ODBC definition thingie, and look at the list of drivers. DBI and/or DBD::ODBC may also have some methods for digging up the ODBC drivers.

When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

    That worked!



    Thanks

      What worked? A system-level DSN, or bypassing DSNs entirely? Did you try both?

    I'm sure roboticus knows this but it might also be useful to others like zuma53. If you create a DSN and successfully connect to it you can use DBD::ODBC's odbc_out_connect_string to get a connection string you can use later without the DSN.
