ODBC Test Tool

  2006-09-12


Today I find myself once again fighting Crystal Reports. It claims that it can’t connect to the ODBC datasource I created for it since it can’t use Npgsql. Just to prove it wrong I quick hacked together an ODBC Test Tool in SharpDevelop. Sure enough, the ODBC connection works just fine.

Here’s a zip of ODBCTestTool which contains the source code and compiled executables under the bin directory. It requires .NET 2.0, and I doubt it runs on Mono since it uses ODBC.

Oh and I didn’t include any license information, so I guess its public domain. Have fun.
