    Default Saved connection String with MySQL

    I have a MySQL table and I am trying to create a grid component. I am using the AlphaDAO connection method. I can get the connection fine. It connects to the table in MySQL and shows the table in the drop down list. However as soon as I move to the fields section I get all sorts of errors.

    One error is:
    Saved_Connection_strings = a5_get_savedadoconnections(","cs")
    The file cannot find the file specified.
    C:\dlgstack.log


    Another error is pictured below. You can see the fields in the MySQL table are there, so I think my connection is fine??
    When I get done selecting OKAY the fields are in the window and I can select them but I get an error with each field selection. Pretty much the same error.

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled Alpha Fivev9. I am on the latest build.
    MySQL is running as I wouldn't be able to connect.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Ha, got it fixed. I just compacted the database and it seems to have fixed everything.
