Establishing MySQL Connection
« on: March 20, 2007, 12:42:25 pm »
Help! I can't get EA to connect to a database repository. More precisely, I've set up an ODBC driver for MySQL. When I click the "Test" button, the MySQL connector window tells me the connection was made. So far so good. So then, in EA, I:
    [1] click "Connect to Server..."
    [2] select "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers"
    [3] connect to my data source in the connection tab (the Test Connection button works here too)
    [4] click ok

But now EA invariably tells me there's no current project.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any and all help.

You need to transfer a project to the MySQL repository.

Refer EA Help - "Upsizing to MySQL".

Thanks. I figured I was overlooking something obvious.

For the record, I had searched help using "ODBC" as the search term. I found the "Setting Up a Database Repository" page and thought that was enough. You could help dummies like me by adding a mention on this page about the Upsizing pages.
