Connecting to MS SQL

  • I am connecting to a MSSQL database with the QODBC driver. I am trying to do some SQL coding and stuff and asking questions on a SQL forum because I don't know much about it since I'm rather new to programming in general.

    I was asked "Are you using ADO.Net or one of the .Net facilities to connect to the database?" does anyone know which is used? Or is this more specific to my program and not just Qt and how do I find this out if that is the case?

    Thank you for any help!

  • I am not clearly understand what are you asking about. Do you asking how QODBC driver works or how define which driver used in some program?

  • Well, ODBC is neither ADO.Net or .Net. It is just that: ODBC.

    Thats right. For more information read this - "ODBC":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ODBC
    But good thing in drivers and libraries is that you not need know how it works and just use it. Maybe later for more experience you can dig deeper.

  • Ooo ok. By the way that he asked I assumed that all connections were either ADO.Net or some other form of .Net.

    Thank you for your answers and clarifying things for me.
