Re: external sql functions accessable from msaccess



fixed

i was able to get it to work using a "pass-through" query...
only problem im having is it prompts me for odbc connection every time. There is a place to put in an ODBC connection string, but im not sure the syntax...Any ideas?

You have to give it the library you registered it to. On my iDate, if
called from a PC I have to do

Select il.iDate(20121014) from system.sysdummy

On lthe AS/400, I can just do Select iDate(20121014) from system.sysdummy

In other words, you to qualify it to tell the AS/400 where the function is.

No sure what forum to post this to but...

I created an sql function (isprime) that i use in my sql. Its works
great on the iseries.

"SELECT CLMNO,ISPRIME(CLMNO) FROM CLAIMS WHERE CLMNO BETWEEN 199950 AND
200050"

I would like to give a power user the ability to use it also. He does
his work using MS Access. When he tried the previous SQL, he gets an
"Undefined function 'isprime' in expression".

Is there a way to make iseries functions available to msaccess users?
