If possible, you may want to look at using IBM Access Client Solutions instead of Client Access. I personally haven't used client access for a few years. Here's a link to ACS:
thanks for the reply, i going tto try it right away.
I tried your solution but maybe I miss something. I download the acs. But how can I solve my problem?
I launch it and get the IBM i Access Client solutions. Is it the "IBM.Data.DB2.iSeries.dll"? Or provider .net?
I am a little lost. If you can help please.
Are you trying to use an ODBC connection to get data from the IBM i (AS400)? Why not use the IBM i as the web server, or set up some requests to retrieve data from it using XML or JSON (using RESTful requests). Even at V5R2 the Apache web server on the IBM i is really good.
Sorry I can't help with ODBC. IBM won't help since your OS version is way out of date. The only other thing I can think of is if you try posting your question on the Midrange-L list at www.midrange.com.
