All -

I have been experimenting with using VBA to validate information in Excel spreadsheets against the master data on our IBM i system.

I have the lastest IBM i ODBC driver installed and DSNXXX is set up using the IBM i Access ODBC driver version 13.64.25.00.

My VBA macro uses this connection string to connect to the system:

Public gADOConn As adodb.Connection
Public strConnection As String
...
strConnection = "DSN=DSNXXX;UID=SLANDESS;PWD=ABCD1234;"
gADOConn.Open strConnection

I have several different environments (library lists) that I need to use from Excel, and I have set up three different DSN's to use, but is there a way to set the library list in the connection string ? It connects to the system successfully, but I have searched far and wide but have not found definitive documentation for the connection string options for IBM i. I see options for setting the database name.

More questions later...
