I know I am repeating David Wright, but you should consider using VA-RPG instead of VB. VA-RPG can access DB/2 files, ODBC files and PC files all in one program. It doesn't *seem* to read the DB/2 files using ODBC, but it may behind the scenes. It seems to be fairly quick. VA-RPG is my first choice for getting AS/400 DB2 data to a PC, or ODBC data on a PC into the AS/400. I have written a series of VA-RPG programs that get an exported PC Btrieve file, import it to an AS/400 DB2 file, then an AS/400 program that does some manipulation, then a VA-RPG file that imports from another DB2 file into an Access database. Yes, VB is faster to write code in than VA-RPG, but in this case VA-RPG has the tools you are looking for. Regards, Jim Langston -----Original Message----- From: Neil Thursby [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Stuart / Dan, Many thanks for the information. What I'm trying to do is access single AS/400 records in real-time. Essentially a stock inquiry program written in Vb. ODBC won't perform in that circumstance so I'm trying to find a technique that will. Has anyone done this for real? Thanks again, Neil.
