IBM has a product called Direct Connect which provides all the ODBC drivers and tools for connectivity to a database on OS/390, AS/400, or just about any platform. The product also is included as part of IBM UDB(DB2) Enterprise Edition. you can download a free trial off IBM website.<BR><BR>My suggestion would be to first talk to your AS400/DB2 support area. You might already be licensed for the product and/or they might have a trial copy for you.<BR><BR>Good luck<BR>Pete<BR><BR>P.S. I did this on OS/390 not AS400, however the process should be very similar.
