ADO.NET and DB2

P: n/a
Good day!

I am creating a program in .NET to extract
some data on a Mainframe DB2.

How do I connect to a Mainframe DB2? Could you
give me some URLs where I could learn more
about this?

Thanks a lot.

When that becomes available I will become rich.
For now, extract the data and download to PC, process then reload.
I hope there are no more than a million rows.

LOL

No URL, but I think the right group for this question:
microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.adonet

Hi Nivra,
I do not have a link either but,

The question is so difficult to answer with so few information.

I think that I would first check what possibilities there are to reach the
DB2

It can be what Jerry said, but if there is something like a Unix connector
on your mainframe that has itself ODBC or maybe you can reach the DB2 using
soap or maybe there is even an ODBC connector on the mainframe itself etc
etc.

I hopes this helps you a little bit on the route.

http://www.connectionstrings.com/
-> "DB2"

This is a VB.NET language group. Notice that you will have a better
chance to get an answer if you post to the ADO.NET newsgroup in future:
