[WD20] Switching a connection var from client/server to classis files and back to client/server [SOLVED]

Startbeitrag von Curtis am 21.06.2017 20:42

I have a connection var that is defined in the project in it code. I use this connection var to successfully connect to my remote db. I can close the connection, modify the connection var to use local files and successfully connect to my local db. The problem is when I try to switch back to remote it's creating a new db somewhere. I can't find where the data is stored, but it's definitely stored somewhere. I get no errors when running the code. I can not understand why I can't reconnect to the remote db.

Here's my connection code. See anything suspect?:


// Parameters of the database connection for 'Main' files in the analysis
UserServer..Server = "myDbServer.com"
UserServer..User = gsUserName
UserServer..Password = gsPassword
UserServer..Database = gsDatabase
UserServer..Provider = hAccessHFClientServer
UserServer..CryptMethod = hCryptNo
UserServer..Compression = True
UserServer..ExtendedInfo = "WD Connection Timeout = 8;"

// Establish the connection
IF NOT HOpenConnection(UserServer) THEN

Error("Error opening user database.")


// Open and connect all files in the main folder Analysis
IF NOT HChangeConnection("Main", UserServer) THEN

Error("Error connecting to user database.")


DisconnectionCode() // This runs before ConnectRemoteDatabase() and ConnectLocalDatabase(). I have tried using either line or both.

IF NOT HClose("*") THEN Trace("Error closing files")
IF NOT HCloseConnection(UserServer) THEN Trace("Error closing connection")


UserServer..Server = "local data"
UserServer..Provider = hAccessHF7
UserServer..Compression = True

IF NOT HOpenConnection(UserServer) THEN



// Open and connect Config file
HChangeConnection("Main", UserServer)

Hi Curtis,

you are doing a changeconnection to classic, but you are NOT doing a hchangedirectory to DEFINE where your files should be.

Just add a hchangedirectory to set the files where you want them and you'll be ok..

if you want to know WHERE they are without it, just do info(OneFoleName..Directory)

Best regards
