I've had this problem to use profilestrings in Pocketpowerbuilder, I got a
workaround that works fine.... The file is written as shood but the file
doesn't seem to work.
The file that I create is a DSN file. If I let ppb create the file, then the
filesize is twice as big as when I would create it with Notepad. What's is
happening here?
The file created with notepad works to connect to the database, the other
one doesn't . (I copy and paste the contents of the file created with ppb in
notepad)

thanks

I've already found that the filesize difference is caused by saving as ANSI
or UNICODE
My next question is, MUST the dsn-file be in ANSI to be able to connect to
the database?
If I use the same file saved in Unicode, the connect doesn't work

Thanks
