Hi,

I'm getting the following message when trying to connect to
a database (.db file):

SQLSTATE 08001
Unable to connect to database server:
Unable to start specified database.


I was getting this error message with 2 .db files; with one
of them I resolved it changing the path of dbeng50.exe in
the OCBC configuration; but the other still have the
problem.

It is a SQL Anywhere 5.0 DB file and I'm using dbeng50.

I wish merry xmas and a better new year for all of us.
Regards,
David.

Can you show us the connection parameters from the ODBC datasource?
