I am new to ODBC programing, and I have created a program that used its sybase
database locally with no problems. However I would like to access this database
on another server but I can't make an ODBC dsn on the clinet machine that points
to a server machine such that it will work.
Do I have to write my client in a special way for this?

Hi Wendell,

You must have an Open Client installed on the client machine, along with the ODBC
driver (which you probably have already).
