Re: Is there really no help out there for DAP?

    I have had problems with the provider in the past and there are many
    reasons. I typically go into control panel and set up an ODBC DSN just to
    make sure I can connect, more than once I could not - eliminating my DAP.
    Out of date WEB components, MDAC and possibly computer name to IP resolution
    is at fault. For instance I can open a DAP using a computer name but can not
    pass cookies, if I determine the IP of that same computer cookies pass just
    fine. So little in the debugging area is available for DAP's. Another
    problem I have seen was the inability to see the fields in an SQL database
    within the Field List, the tables were present but not fields. I killed the
    connection and created another exactly as the original and all was fixed - go
    figure, no error messages before either.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
