    Default ODBC Connection String ?

    Can external sources connect to an Alpha 5 database? I can see that Alpha 5 can connect to other data sources but not the reverse... want to generate a database driven dynamic website using Alpha 5 but am beginning to think it is not possible... may have to use Access... anybody?

    Hi Kevin,

    Currently the only Alpha to web to Alpha option I know of is to use the beta web server.

    Kevin,

    I should think the ODBC driver for FoxPro 2.6 data sources would be able to talk to Alpha's tables just fine. Might have trouble if you're using memo fields for fancy binary or RTF stuff, but otherwise should be pretty straightforward.
