Appendix "G" - Database plugin connection strings

This section gives you the connection strings you can use to connect to your database server in the database plugin of Ozeki Message Server 6. To configure the database plugin, you have to enter one of these connectio strings on the databse plugin configuration form (Figure 1). In some situtations the SQL templates need to be modified in order to have database connectivity. This can be done on the SQL Templates tab of this form.


Figure 1. - Database plugin configuration form

The connection strings are organized into groups according to the following table of contents:

Overview

Generally, one of the first steps when you are trying to work with databases is open it. You can find several types of those, and each have a different mode of connection. When you try to connect with your database sometimes, you don't know the correct connection string that you must use. It is for that this chapter is written. It contains the connection strings to the majority of known databases...

ODBC DSN Less Connection ODBC Driver for dBASE

Connection string: "Driver={Microsoft dBASE Driver (*.dbf)};DriverID=277;Dbq=c:\DatabasePath;"

Note: You must specify the filename in the SQL template statement... For example:

"Select Name, Address From Clients.dbf"

ODBC Driver for Excel


Connection string: "Driver={Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls)};DriverId=790;
bq=C:\DatabasePath\DBSpreadSheet.xls;DefaultDir=c:\databasepath;"

ODBC Driver for Text


Connection string: "Driver={Microsoft Text Driver (*.txt; *.csv)};
Dbq=C:\DatabasePath\;Extensions=asc,csv,tab,txt;"

If you are using tab delimited files, you must create the schema.ini file, and you must inform the Format=TabDelimited option in your connection string.

Note: You must specify the filename in the SQL template statement... For example:

"Select Name, Address From Clients.csv"

Visual FoxPro

If you are using a database container, the connection string is the following:

Connection string: "Driver={Microsoft Visual Foxpro Driver};UID=;SourceType=DBC;
SourceDB=C:\DatabasePath\MyDatabase.dbc;Exclusive=No"

If you are working without a database container, you must change the SourceType parameter by DBF as in the following connection string:

Connection string: "Driver={Microsoft Visual Foxpro Driver};UID=;SourceType=DBF;
SourceDB=C:\DatabasePath\MyDatabase.dbc;Exclusive=No"

ODBC Driver for Access


Connection string: "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};
Dbq=c:\DatabasePath\dbaccess.mdb;Uid=;Pwd=;"

If you are using a Workgroup (System database): you need to inform the SystemDB Path, the User Name and its password. For that, you have two solutions: inform the user and password in the connection string or in the moment of the open operation. For example:

Connection string: "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};
Dbq=C:\VC Projects\ADO\Samples\AdoTest\dbTestSecurity.mdb;
SystemDB=C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\SYSTEM.mdw;
Uid=Carlos Antollini;Pwd=carlos"

or may be:

Connection string: "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};
Dbq=C:\VC Projects\ADO\Samples\AdoTest\dbTestSecurity.mdb;
SystemDB=C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\SYSTEM.mdw;"

If you want to open in Exclusive mode:

Connection string: "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};
Dbq=c:\DatabasePath\dbaccess.mdb;Exclusive=1;"

ODBC Driver for SQL Server

For Standard security:

Connection string: "Driver={SQL Server};Server=MyServerName;
Trusted_Connection=no;Database=MyDatabaseName;Uid=MyUserName;Pwd=MyPassword;"

For Trusted Connection security (Microsoft Windows NT integrated security):

Connection string: "Driver={SQL Server};Server=MyServerName;
Database=myDatabaseName;Uid=;Pwd=;"
Also, you can use the parameter Trusted_Connection that indicates that you are using the Microsoft Windows NT Authentication Mode to authorize user access to the SQL Server database. For example:
 
Connection string: "Driver={SQL Server};Server=MyServerName;
Database=MyDatabaseName;Trusted_Connection=yes;"

If the SQL Server is running in the same computer, you can replace the name of the server by the word (local) like in the following sample:
 
Connection string: "Driver={SQL Server};Server=(local);
Database=MyDatabaseName;Uid=MyUserName;Pwd=MyPassword;"

If you want to connect with a remote SQL Server, you must inform the address, the port, and the Network Library to use:

The Address parameter must be an IP address and must include the port. The Network parameter can be one of the following:

  • dbnmpntw Win32 Named Pipes
  • dbmssocn Win32 Winsock TCP/IP
  • dbmsspxn Win32 SPX/IPX
  • dbmsvinn Win32 Banyan Vines
  • dbmsrpcn Win32 Multi-Protocol (Windows RPC)
Connection string: "Driver={SQL Server};Server=130.120.110.001;Address=130.120.110.001,1052;
Network=dbmssocn;Database=MyDatabaseName;Uid=myUsername;Pwd=myPassword;"

ODBC Driver for Oracle
For the current Oracle ODBC driver from Microsoft:
Connection string: "Driver={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle};
Server=OracleServer.world;
Uid=MyUsername;Pwd=MyPassword;"

For the older Oracle ODBC driver from Microsoft:

Connection string: "Driver={Microsoft ODBC Driver for Oracle};
ConnectString=OracleServer.world;Uid=myUsername;Pwd=myPassword;"

ODBC Driver for MySQL

If you want to connect to a local database, you can use a connection string like the following:

Connection string: "Driver={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};Server=localhost;
Database=MyDatabase;User=MyUserName;Password=MyPassword;Option=4;"

If you want to connect with a remote database, you need to specify the name of the server or its IP in the Server parameter. If the Port is distinct to 3306 (default port), you must specify it.

Connection string: "Driver={mySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};Server=MyRemoteHost;
Port=3306;Option=4;Database=MyDatabase;Uid=MyUsername;Pwd=MyPassword;"

The parameter Option can be one or more of the following values:

  • 1 - The client can't handle that MyODBC returns the real width of a column.
  • 2 - The client can't handle that MySQL returns the true value of affected rows. If this flag is set then MySQL returns 'found rows' instead. One must have MySQL 3.21.14 or newer to get this to work.
  • 4 - Make a debug log in c:\myodbc.log. This is the same as putting MYSQL_DEBUG=d:t:O,c::\myodbc.log in AUTOEXEC.BAT.
  • 8 - Don't set any packet limit for results and parameters.
  • 16 - Don't prompt for questions even if driver would like to prompt.
  • 32 - Enable or disable the dynamic cursor support. This is not allowed in MyODBC 2.50.
  • 64 - Ignore use of database name in 'database.table.column'.
  • 128 - Force use of ODBC manager cursors (experimental).
  • 256 - Disable the use of extended fetch (experimental).
  • 512 - Pad CHAR fields to full column length.
  • 1024 - SQLDescribeCol() will return fully qualified column names.
  • 2048 - Use the compressed server/client protocol.
  • 4096 - Tell server to ignore space after function name and before '(' (needed by PowerBuilder). This will make all function names keywords!
  • 8192 - Connect with named pipes to a MySQLd server running on NT.
  • 16384 - Change LONGLONG columns to INT columns (some applications can't handle LONGLONG).
  • 32768 - Return 'user' as Table_qualifier and Table_owner from SQLTables (experimental).
  • 65536 - Read parameters from the client and ODBC groups from my.cnf.
  • 131072 - Add some extra safety checks (should not be needed but...).

If you want to have multiple options, you should add the above flags! For example: 16 + 1024 = 1030 and use Option= 1030;.

For more information, go to MyODBC Reference Manual.

    OLE DB Provider for OLAP

    Microsoft� OLE DB for Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) is a set of objects and interfaces that extends the ability of OLE DB to provide access to multidimensional data stores.

    Connection string: "Provider=MSOLAP;Data Source=MyOLAPServerName;
    Initial Catalog=MyOLAPDatabaseName;"

    Connection using HTTP:

    This feature enables a client application to connect to an Analysis server through Microsoft� Internet Information Services (IIS) by specifying a URL in the Data Source property in the client application's connection string. This connection method allows PivotTable� Service to tunnel through firewalls or proxy servers to the Analysis server. A special Active Server Pages (ASP) page, Msolap.asp, enables the connection through IIS. The directory in which this file resides must be included as part of the URL when connecting to the server (for example, http://www.myserver.com/myolap/).

    Using a URL

    Connection string: "Provider=MSOLAP;Data Source=http://MyOLAPServerName/;
    Initial Catalog=MyOLAPDatabaseName;"

    Using SSL


    Connection string: "Provider=MSOLAP;Data Source=https://MyOLAPServerName/;
    Initial Catalog=MyOLAPDatabaseName;"
