I have been assigned a project and given a set of tools to complete it
with. The compiler is Borland Delphi 16 and the SQL engine is Watcom
SQL for NetWare.
I have patched Watcom to the 4.0E level, so I believe that I am
current there. I'm using the Delphi 16 that is on my Delphi Developer
2.0 cd, so I believe that I am ok there too.
The app has to use ODBC calls to access the data, which will be stored
in a table on a NetWare server.
These stipulations are non-negotiable.
My problem is that I don't know where to start. I'm up-to-speed with
database apps and the BDE. However, ODBC is all new to me.
Does anyone have either a simple working example or know of a good
reference for ODBC? The Watcom manuals do not seem to go into much
detail. It may be possible for me to get Watcom SQL upgraded to SQL
anywhere, but is this necessary and would it make things
I'm most interested in how to open the table, accessing and posting
Any comments, suggestions or whatever would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
