How to connect to cloud database using powerbuilder?

I want to connect to CLoud db using powerbuilder.

I am using transaction object .dbms = “odbc” for connection.

If I create DSN then its working fine.

But I want to connect to Cloud database without DSN Creation.

Can you please let me know what will be the connection string and transaction object’s property I will have to set so I can connect to multiple database on cloud?

Here is my sample code


db_para = “;dbn=sample_db;uid=dba;pwd=sql”
//Set Database connection parameters
tr_sqlca.DBMS = “odbc”
tr_sqlca.AutoCommit = False
tr_sqlca.DBPARM = db_para

connect using tr_sqlca;

I am getting dialogbox to select DSN.

If I use SYC as dbms then getting message like “error loading client library DLLs. “


I can connect to cloud database using command prompt but not through powerbuilder.

  • Hi Bhavesh:

    Passinng in the "DRIVER" argument in the connection
    string - the ASE ODBC driver must still be present on the system.

    "DRIVER=Adaptive Server Enterprise;UID=dba;PWD=sql;ENG=MyEngine;..."

    Can you give it a try and let me know if it works.?


  • Hi Bhavesh,

    The following connection string succeeds with my local ASE server. Please try it with your cloud ASE server.

    // Profile ase126_odbc


    SQLCA.AutoCommit = False

    SQLCA.DBParm = "ConnectString='Driver={Adaptive Server Enterprise};Srvr=PEKN50822184A;Uid=sa;Pwd=XXXXXX'"
