Using Microsoft udl files in connection's connection string

Post by johnhutchings » Tue 14 Mar 2006 20:10

I have been using the UDL files with my ADO connection and the format "FILE NAME=MyUDL.UDL in the connection string. When the connection is activated the FILE NAME is resolved and the udl file used to define the connection.

I want to port to SDAC.

I do not seem to be able to use the FILE NAME= syntax. with the SDAC Connection I have tried extracting the string directly from the udl but this also fails.

Do you have a recommendation for porting from ADO to SDAC??

Thank you for information.
We reproduced the problem. It appears only only if one ADOConnection (without ADOQuery, ADOTable etc) is present on the form. It will be fixed in the next version.
