PHP odbc_connect doesn't... when via DSN
Posted by: kiernan7 (

I have an ODBC Connection that works:

$cqmconn = odbc_connect("Driver={SQL Server Native Client 10.0}; Server=JOHN-HP; Database=cqmla;", "sa", "sa" ) or die ("Unable to connect to CQM site." );

However, I have an existing ODBC Driver called "cqm2" that connects to cqmla, but the line below does NOT make a connection (with or without the "SQL_CUR_USE_ODBC"

$cqmconn = odbc_connect("cqm2","sa","sa", SQL_CUR_USE_ODBC) or die ("Unable to connect to CQM site." )

I can, however, use that ODBC connection (and credentials) with Visual FoxPro and the DSN connection works fine. What am I missing?

I ask this because while I certainly can use the first method here, I have ANOTHER proprietary system that I cannot get to work, although it does have an ODBC connection I can access via other software using the:
$cqmconn = odbc_connect("cqm2","sa","sa" )
format. If I can get my existing connection to work here, I figure I should then be able to call the other one.

What am I missing? Thanks in advance!
