View Full Version : CONNECTING TO AS/400 WITH VISUAL BASIC.NET

Which version is "This Version"? Dave

I PURCHASED "Visual Basic.net Standard" (about $98); A member of Visual Studio.NET Ver 2003 Seems to be the only version available unless I purchase some version of the full Visual Studio Product. Also: We have an early ver of Visual Studio which will connect and display an AS/400 Connection in the Server Explorer BUT, nothing is displayed under TABLES. I only know how to connect using TOOLS / CONNECT TO DATABASE and then selecting a Provider.

You need a minimum of Visual Basic.net Professional. MS takes features out of the "standard" version. Dave

Dave: Do you mean Visual Studio.net Professional? I have not seen a standalone version of Visual Basic.net Professional.

I don't know if VB exists as a standalone. You may have to get the entire Visual Studio. Dave

If I were you, I'd try to get the earlier version going, it shouldn't be that difficult to fix the problem. Bill

JUST INSTALLED VISUAL BASIC.NET BUT, CANNOT CONNECT TO THE AS/400 (TRIED FROM A WINDOWS FORM). GET MSG: "UNABLE TO CONNNECT TO DATABASE. IT IS ONLY POSSIBLE TO CONNECT TO SQL SERVER DESKTOP ENGINE DATABASES AND MICROSOFT ACCESS DATABASES WTIH THIS VERSION OF VISUAL STUDIO." HELP!

Bill, Can you connect to the /400? If so, PLEASE tell me all the GORY Details! Ben

I've always connected using ODBC connections, but you also have available an OLE/DB capability as well. Do you have Client Access or iSeries Access installed on the PC? Bill
