Like the title says, I'm having a problem with the tutorial where I started with all the demo files except for the database file as far as I could see. Either that, or when trying to connect to the ODB ODBC Database Profile PB SQLServer V2022 it just didn't show. So I did as the tutorial said and went to set up the connection myself. I had problems with sql server not finding my local server so I set up an ODBC connection with the sql anywhere db. However even after doing do the ODB ODBC Database Profile list still didn't have PB SQLServer V2022.

I'm at my wits end here and I'm not sure how much longer I can continue trying to make this simple feature work. Any help would be greatly appreciated at this time.

With "connections list" do you mean the list of profiles in the PB IDE or in the ODBC administrator?

Do you have a link to "the tutorial" so we know of which of the several demos you are speaking?

What database are you trying to use: SqlAnywhere or SqlServer? You mention both in your question.

Can you find the profiles in the 32 / 64 bit ODBC administrator tool of windows? (if running powerserver or PB in 64 bit mode , you need 64 bit configuration)?

64-bit ODBC for SQL Anywhre 17 is installed and pops up in the ODBC Datasource Administrator (64-bit). I define one for my db, it works, then in PB2022 IDE it does not show. Not in the PB2022 database IDE window nor in the PB2022 IDE DB Profiles tool.
