Hello ladies and gentlemen.
In control panel there is ODBC drivers to connect databases to the project to one of the programming languages that we use. Is ODBC an API to connect MS Access or SQL Server or others to avoid typing some extra code?
Can we avoid ODBC connectivity in control panel instead typing some extra code? Just curiosity.like PHP and some others no need to go to control panel instead put some code inside the IDE.I mean wouldn't it be cooler if we don't go to control panel to link the database to our project?
How do you link the database to your project using the control panel?
By going to control panel - administrative tools - ODBC Drivers and then system DSN for all users or user DSN and add the database finally specify the location of the databe.
Sorry, my question is not specific to just C++. why wouldl you implement things that can be easier done with that tool?
For the purpose of understanding.
Thanks for your answer.
Been doing strictly ODBC for years. Love it. I refuse to allow extra dependencies in my code,so I do ODBC direct. I've provided several tutorials here about it. If my memory serves me right I can create a stand alone x64 app connecting to anything in about 5 or 6 k.
