I want to be able to use CA/400 ODBC driver in Visual Basic to connect to 
F8309 FASTR work file with an explicit reference to  IBM file member that 
holds my FASTR report PC download information.  I cannot figure out the 
ODBC connection string portion describing member name in CA/400 ODBC.

I can do this with ShowCase ODBC (SELECT ... FROM LIBRARY.F8309:MEMBER).  I 
also can create a physical file with AS/400 query or FTP and dump it to a PC, 
but it all requires extra steps.
Does anyone have any clue how this could be done directly with CA/400 ODBC in 
Any help or comments are appreciated.

Dear Vladimir,

The IBM Tech Studio portion of the IBM AS/400 Technical Support web site has 
some ODBC information that might help you. The URL is:


Click on the ODBC selection in the list.

Hope this helps,
