Troubleshooting - Visual Studio Connection to QODBC

Problem Description:

I am getting the following message from Visual Studio 2015 when trying to connect to QRemote using the ODBC data source:

"An error occurred while retrieving the information from the database: Column 'TABLE_CAT' does not belong to table Tables."

We unchecked the box on the server to run 2.1 ODBC compatibility.

The test connection works, and I can access the data using QRemote on my client machine, but I cannot get this database to connect to Visual Studio.


Please query the table directly instead of loading tables.

For Example:

Select * from the customer

I get this message trying to configure a DataSource. I cannot access any info using VS 2015 and VB. Perhaps a more detailed 'Solution'?

Hi Randy,

You need to query wizard & write query manually instead of loading tables.
