DB2 ODBC Connection Expiration

I am working on an audit trail mechanism for an MS-Access application
that connects to a DB2 backend. We need the APPLICATION_ID to remain
constant until the application is terminated. It appears that DB2
connections expire after some duration and new ones are created when
needed by the application. Is there a way to confiure the connection
expiration so it persists until the application is terminated?

The application-id will not be changed unless the client disconnects from
DB2. My guess is that your ODBC driver (in case you are not using DB2 CLI
natively) or your client application performs the disconnect - maybe
MS-Access? You should have a look at these configurations.

I am using the MySQL ODBC 3.51 driver to link three relatively small MySQL tables to a Microsoft Access 2003 database.

The MySQL data is sitting out on a server and the Access database is running locally. The network connection is very...

Is it possible to call a remote php script from within Access? I'm thinking something like: DoCMD... http://www.domain.com/scripts/dataquery.php DoCmd.OpenQuery "update_data", acNormal, acEdit ..... So the PHP script does something on the server database, then when a linked table is viewed within access, the data changes have been made?

Hi All, I am currently trying to link in Access 97 to a table in a MSSQL 7 server. Initially the link is fine, however, when I close the access database and re-open it from the same network lacation on a different machine, it tells me that the ODBC connection to 'SQL Server Name' failed. How can I create the linked table permenant no matter what machine the networked database is opened on?
