Appreciate the kind help recieved.


Q1) COULD YOU PLS CHECK THE FOLLOWING C++ CODES:

//databaseDlg.cpp 


#using <mscorlib.dll>
#using <System.dll>
#using <System.Data.dll>

void CdatabaseDlg::CreateMySqlDataReader(char* mySelectQuery, char* myConnectionString)
{   
     SqlConnection* myConnection = new SqlConnection(myConnectionString "provider=sqloledb;Data Source=local;Initial Catalog=PRODUCT;User Id=temp;Password=password;");
            
     SqlCommand* myCommand = new SqlCommand(mySelectQuery "SELECT ITEM FROM PRODUCT",  myConnection);
               
     myConnection->Open();
     SqlDataReader* myReader = myCommand->ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior::CloseConnection);
     while(myReader->Read())
     {
          Console::WriteLine(myReader->GetString(0));
     }
     myReader->Close();
     //Implicitly closes the connection because CommandBehavior::CloseConnection was specified.
};

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

//databaseDlg.h
//Declare the method here

public:
     
    void CreateMySqlDataReader(char* mySelectQuery, char* myConnectionString);

void CdatabaseDlg::CreateMySqlDataReader(char* mySelectQuery, char* myConnectionString)
{
     CdatabaseDlg call;
     call.CreateMySqlDataReader("SELECT ITEM FROM PRODUCT",
     "provider=sqloledb;Data Source=local;Initial Catalog=MENU;User Id=temp;Password=password");
}

I do not understand why you want to directly use a tcp/ip connection for fetching the data.

Rather creater a dsn to be used over the network to access the sqlserver data.

From your Cpp file use Sqlconnect using the dsn name. Prepare the stmt and exceute the sql statement to retrieve the data.

Hi Sutanu!

I'm using tcp/ip to transfer those data from my sql server 2000 to my client.

You suggest that to use:

Q1) How do i do that?
Q2) Can you provide some source codes?

Thank You
