( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am the current maintainer of DBD::ODBC

WOW, thank heavens for that :-)

Ok, I wonder if you can help me please (this may seem very simple but I am having kittens already)

I have this script
#! c:/perl/bin/perl.exe # # # # # use strict; use DBI; use DBD::ODBC; use DBD::ADO; use Win32::OLE; use Win32::ODBC; #use Win32::SqlServer; my $server = "ABCB00062\\Dev"; my $dbusername = "uk_ggg\\xyz12345"; my $dbpassword = '7seven7'; my $database = 'ukdevxxxx'; my $Error_Message = "\nThere Was A Problem Connecting To The Database\ +n"; my $dbh; #Database Handler #$dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:ODBC:driver={SQL Server};Server=$server;Data +base=$database;UID=$dbusername;PWD=$dbpassword") || die "$Error_Mess +age $DBI::errstr"; $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:ODBC:dsnname;Server=$server;Database=$databas +e;UID=$dbusername;PWD=$dbpassword")
But when I run it i get the following error
U:\Doccuments\Scripts\Start> DBI connect('dsnname;Server=ABCB00062\Dev;Database=ukdevxxxx;UID=uk_gg +g\\xyz12345; PWD=7seven7','',...) failed: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data sou +rce name not found and no default driver specified (SQL-IM002) at U:\Doccu +ments\Scri pts\Start\ line 32
I thought I had all the requirements in place! Would it be possible for you please to advise me on what I need to do? Thanks in advance

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
