How to use OLEDB to access SQLBase from SQLServer
Some sites running MS SQLServer may wish they had used SQLBase from the start !
They can however access the data held in a SQLBase database
directly from SQLServer via a 'Linked Server' and a Gupta OLEDB driver called SQLBaseOLEDB.dll ,
found in the SQLBase run-time folder.
The 'bitness' of both SQLServer , SQLBase and the Driver must all be the same i.e. 64 or 32 bit.
If you are runing SQLBase 12 , the minimum version you can use is 12.0.1 for this to work .
Once you have created the SQLServer 'Linked Server' , then granted rights to it , you can
Select , Update,Insert or Delete SQLBase data directly from SQLServer ( e.g. from SS Management Studio ).
The syntax of the 'Select' differs from Inserts , Updates etc.
Download the script to see a woring example running against 'ISLAND' database:
1) Create a Linked Server
2) Create login rights to SQLBase
3) Sample DML using the new Linked Server
