i am new at VB, i used to programm in Delphi.
now i want to convert my program to VB.
In Delphi it is simpel to connect to a database.
In VB i can not get this right.
What am i doing wrong:

code:

Public Class klant
Private Sub klant_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Dim odbcverbinding As OdbcConnection
Dim prdxconnString As String = "Driver={Microsoft Paradox Driver (*.db )};DriverID=538;Fil=Paradox 5.X;DefaultDir=E:\nog uit pakken\projecten\;Dbq=E:\nog uit pakken\projecten\;CollatingSequence=ASCII"
odbcverbinding = New Odbc.OdbcConnection(prdxconnString)
odbcverbinding.Open()
Dim str As String
str = "select * from test"
Dim ODBCadp As New OdbcDataAdapter(str, odbcverbinding)
Dim dt As New DataTable("test")
ODBCadp.Fill(dt)
Me.DataGridView1.DataSource = dt
Label1.Text =
CStr(Me.DataGridView1.RowCount)
End Sub
End
Class

/code

getting unexpected error

ERROR [HY000] [Microsoft][ODBC Paradox-stuurprogramma] An unexpected error occurred in the driver for the remote database (11265).

It's easy to connect to a database in VB too, but you have to use the appropriate data. You say that you're using Paradox 7 yet you have a connection string that is specifically for Paradox 5. I'm not sure where you got that connection string but www.connectionstrings.com is usually the best source for connection strings. It has one for Paradox 7 with ODBC but I would probably suggest using OLE DB instead anyway.

Paradox Connection String Samples - ConnectionStrings.com

changed the string

Imports System.Data.Odbc
Public Class klant
Private Sub klant_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Dim odbcverbinding As OdbcConnection
Dim prdxconnString As String = "Provider=MSDASQL;" & _
"Persist Security Info=False;" & _
"Mode=Read;" & _
"Extended Properties='DSN=Paradox;DBQ=E:\nog uit pakken\projecten\;" & _
"DefaultDir=E:\nog uit pakken\projecten\;DriverId=538;FIL=Paradox 7.X;MaxBufferSize=2048;PageTimeout=600;';" & _
"Initial Catalog=E:\nog uit pakken\projecten\;"
odbcverbinding = New Odbc.OdbcConnection(prdxconnString)
odbcverbinding.Open()
Dim str As String
str = "select * from test"
Dim ODBCadp As New OdbcDataAdapter(str, odbcverbinding)
Dim dt As New DataTable("test")
ODBCadp.Fill(dt)
Me.DataGridView1.DataSource = dt
Label1.Text =
CStr(Me.DataGridView1.RowCount)
End Sub
End
Class

use English language when you post here:
