    Default Paradox

    For a site I&#039;m developping I want to retrieve data from a Paradox database (version 5.0). I&#039;ve tried all the connectionstrings that I could found on the internet, but none of them did work. <BR><BR>The error I get is the same with every effort: <BR>Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error &#039;80004005&#039; <BR>Data source name not found and no default driver specified <BR><BR>Can somebody please explain how I can do this succesfully...???

    For a Paradox DB, what you need to do is set up a System DSN That connects to the Database. The System DSN would probably need to use the BDE (borland database Engine) to get through to Paradox. <BR><BR>I&#039;m not sure if this will work as I&#039;ve never tried from the web, but it definately works through Delphi, BDE is a prerequisite though!<BR><BR>HTH.<BR>D.
