Change Excel Odbc Connection?

Oct 6, 2009

I have an excel with 10 sheets, each sheet has a connection stored in it because i am using the ms query to read data from access database. when I code the below, both line are accepted by (with new or without)

Dim wb1 As Excel.Workbook
Dim wb2 As New Excel.Workbook

Now when I code

Dim wb_cnn1 As Excel.ODBCConnection ' Works Fine
Dim wb_cnn2 As new Excel.ODBCConnection ' Error 'New' cannot be used on an interface.

Q1: Why I cannot create New Excel.ODBCConnection? I have this

Dim xlsApp As New Excel.Application
Dim wb_cnn As Excel.ODBCConnection
Dim wb As Excel.Workbook


Maybe because it is read only. I want that because the ms query is hardcoding the path of the access db even if i choose DSN so, if I change the location of the access file the query in the excel will not work, Q2: How I can change the connection in the Excel sheet?

Import Excel Data Into SQL Server - ERROR: "ODBC --Connection To {SQL Server} Servernamesqlservername Failed"

Aug 13, 2010

I am trying to do something fairly simple.. allow my user to import thier data from Excel into SQL Server, where it can be used by the application.To do this, I'm using the fairly simple code that is common everywhere I look:

strFilePath = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" + fdlgFileOpen.FileName + ";Extended Properties=Excel 8.0"
connExcel = New OleDbConnection(strFilePath)


Now, on my development computer this code works perfectly.  The data imports, and I can go on my merry way.

On the TEST computer, this code throws the error: "ODBC -- Connection to {SQL Server} servernamesqlservername  failed."  This seems very odd to me, because I'm using exactly the same SQL Server and database to interact with the application, and all the other screens in the application work perfectly.  The test computer CAN connect to this SQL Server, but it keeps throwing this error whenever I try import data from Excel.I've tried everything I can think of - using the server's IP address instead of the server name, sending the SQL Server administrator data along with the request, taking out the Trusted_Connection=Yes... nothing works.  What is going on here? How can this code work fine on my computer, and hiccup on another?

Keep A Odbc Connection Open?

Jan 14, 2011

I'm trying to connect to a database and keep the connection open for any amount of user activity/queries within the database. Currently I have a connection that opens and closes for any query (save, update, etc...) which requires the logon process to the back-end every time the user saves etc... Is there a way to simply connect and leave the connection open so there won't be a lag time when running the query due to the logon process? This is what I'm using:

Private sConStrFormat As String = "Provider=TDOLEDB;Data Source=TDDEV;Persist Security Info=True;User ID={0};Password={1};Default Database=bcpm_ddbo;Session Mode=ANSI;"

Oracle ODBC Connection Monitoring?

Apr 8, 2011

I'm trying to develop a simple app with in VS 2010 that could monitor the ODBC connections via DSN made on the macnhine running this app.My scenario is an application (non Vb) running on a workstation that connects to an MS Access database on a network share.

The application (non Vb) connects using a link (ODBC connection via Oracle 10G) to the tables on the Oracle side.My Application should monitor the machine running the main application for ODBC connections drops and alert me via email for example.My question is where in the framework can I find something to instantiate or reference in order to check ODBC connections states constantly as well as network disconnection issues as well so I can log and /or alert when possible for network problems and ODBC connection problems for all the applications that might run on the host (machine running my vb app).

ODBC Connection To Excell Eats First Row - How To Stop It

I'm using Visual Studio 2005 Pro. I have an ODBC (not OLEdb) Connection to a spreadsheet. Works fine except the first row is missing. How do I stop this behavior? I can see that for OLEdb there is a way to suppress this behavior using the HDR=No parameter in the connection string. When I try that for the ODBC connection, No change. Row Still Eaten. I also went to the HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftJet4.0EnginesExcel registry key and changed the FirstRowHasNames value to 00. No change. Row Still Eaten.

Connect To Transoft U/SQL License Using An Odbc Connection And And OdbcDataAdapter?

I'm trying to connect to Transoft U/SQL license using an odbc connection and and odbcDataAdapter. I am using a function to return a dataset into the mainModule.

dsOMD = getOMDinfo(psSerialNbr)

The Function code that is being used is as follows:

Function getOMDinfo(ByVal strSerialNumber As String) As System.Data.DataSet
Dim myconnection1 = New OdbcConnection("DSN=omd.udd;uid=;")
Dim strSQL As String = String.Empty


I am getting the following error:

Message: "ERROR [42000] [Transoft][TSODBC][usqlsd]Name expected ([)"

If I change the code to use a datareader it I can loop through the data but a data reader is not recommended to pass through the layers and so I'm wanting to create a dataset/data table process. Anyone have any ideas why the dataset/dataTable code is not working properly?

Cast A Data Type With The Odbc Excel Driver?

Feb 4, 2011

I'm using the Microsoft Excel Driver to import an Excel document into a adodb.recordset so that I can remove duplicate rows and put it into the SQL Server database.

The first column has values like 192, 13U, JJJ, etc. but for some reason the query casts it as a double value, and any rows with alpha values get converted to Null. From what I can tell this is because the Majority type is numeric instead of text.

I tried casting it, but got an error.

Here's my function:

Studion 2010 Express - Message=ODBC--connection To 'SQL ServerBilotta-pcsqlexpress' Failed.Source=Microsoft Access?

Feb 5, 2012

I'm using Visual Basic/Studio 2010 Express to run my VB program using MS Access database. I'm going to convert the Access database to a SQL Server Server Express data base so I downloaded SQL Server 2008 R2 Express onto my pc with Windows 7. The installation went fine and I actually converted my Access database to SQL server. I did not change anything in my VB program.My problem: When I run my normal program with the Access database (no changes), I now get an error when it executes the following code:

I get the error System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException was unhandled;
ErrorCode=-2147467259;  Message=ODBC--connection to 'SQL ServerBilotta-pcsqlexpress' failed.

Using ODBC Works Fine On 32-bit But Unable To Locate ODBC On 64-bit

The report uses an ODBC connection provided by 32-bit software accounts package, which is installed in the ODBC 32-bit This all works fine on 32-bit XP and 32-bit Win7 with no problems, When run on a win7 64-bit machine the application launches ok, but when it comes to running the report, it prompts for a database logon box for the odbc connection.

When the report is run seperate on its own, on the exact same pc through crystal reports desginer it runs fine, Its almost like the application is not picking the 32-bit ODBC set up is it the case that the connection needs to be coded rather than using the report connection,

Open/ Modify Excel Through - Error: System.Data.Odbc.OdbcException: ERROR [42000]

Jun 22, 2010

I'm writing an application that imports and tidy up address data into a cleaned, deduped excel workbook ordered in rows with each column as an address field. One of the issues I've ran into is that we sometimes get a workbook where the multiple address fields are held in a single cell with line breaks. I've written code to extract all of this data out of the excel sheet in to a dataset with each sheet as a table and the address fields contained within. I now want to create a new Excel workbook from this data with the address fields in Row and columns the problem I have is I can Open/create the Workbook but when I try to insert a new Sheet (Table) I get an error saying the Workbook is read only....

Formatting Excel - If I Try Using Style.numberformat With The Date And Time Formats, They Don't Change And Are Entered As If Didn't Change The Format?

Mar 11, 2011

I am throwing some data out into Excel and am having some formatting troubles. I have 5 columns (date, time, a long number I don't want displayed in scientific notation - text is fine, text, text). I can get it all working with numberformat, however I have to do them different ways.

Date works this way cell.numberformat = "m/d/yy" and it formats it to say 3/1/11

Time works this way cell.numberformat = "h:mm AM/PM" and it formats it to say 8:07 AM

For the long number cell.numberformat = "@" and it doesn't change the format and it gets displayed in scientific notation

BUT if I use = "@" it works as it should, but it messes up all of the date and time cells. Apparently when you use style.numberformat, it doesn't just apply to the cell you're working with. If I try using style.numberformat with the date and time formats, they don't change and are entered as if I didn't change the format at all.
