Qt unixODBC and FreeTDS
Kanni1303 last edited by
I am trying to connect Qt with MSSQL server DB, for this I am using unixODBC and FreeTDS.
I tested unixODBC and FreeTDS, they were working fine, as I tested isql, tsql.
The problem was Qt is not refering to the settings files(~/.odbc.ini and ~/freetds.ini) but Qt is refering to some other location, hence I am getting the error "QSqlError(0, "QODBC3: Unable to connect", " [unixODBC][Driver Manager]Data source name not found, and no default driver specified")"
How I can tell Qt to point to the settings file location. or how I can get on which location Qt is refering.
I created the symbolic link of the files in (/etc , /usr/local/etc, /etc/unixODBC/) but none of them were working.
Any help will be appreciated greatly, thnx in advance:)

and my Qt call
QSqlDatabase db = QSqlDatabase::addDatabase("QODBC3");
