odbc connection

P: n/a
I am working with Visual Basic .net standard. I wan't to
connect with a Mysql database through ODBC. After i
configure the ODBC connection object i get a message that
states that i can only connect to Ms Access or SQL server
databases with this version of Visual studio.

Why is this happening ?

Armin,
I'd misread the word "this version"
Now I never forget it

Cor,

what i mean is: why do the vb.net 2003 visual design tools
not support the ODBC connection? Do i need another version
of vb.net or visual studio?

Ok, Armin.

Looks that we have to go to one of the 'higher' versions
to make it work.
