Hello,

The short answer to your question is that you can connect to an Informix database just like you would connect to an SQL Server or Oracle Database, using ODBC.

There are a number of vendors that offer ODBC drivers that you can use.

If you need more information, please let me know.

Hi

1. To access Informix from VB install in the server.
a. For NT Informix CLI for Informix DSA.
b. For Unix Informix star for Informix Online 5.
2. Install Informix CLI on the client.
3. Use ODBC data source administrator to set DSN for theconnection.
cn.ConnectionString = "DSN=myinformix;UID=userid;PWD=password;"
cn.Open

Good luck

Mohamed
