    Very goog article!

    Now... I am trying to use the MaxDB version of that database, since it supports stored procedures.

    I have been able to connect and to execute SQL command, but when trying to use a SP it happens an error.


    odbcComm.CommandText = "call playercount";

    ERROR [42000] [MySQL MaxDB][SQLOD32 DLL][MaxDB] Syntax error or access violation;-3005 POS(1) Invalid SQL statement ERROR [42000] [MySQL MaxDB][SQLOD32 DLL][MaxDB] Syntax error or access violation;-3005 POS(1) Invalid SQL statement

    Have you some experience with this version?

    Best Regards!

    maybe this is the wrong place for this specific question, but how do you walk through the data? In Visual Basic 6, using databases was easy. Create a record set, then;   recordsetName!FieldName

    I can't find any easy way to do this in C#. Any ideas?
