Does anyone have any code examples for connecting to Navision from either VB6 or VB.NET?
Ive run out of ideas trying to figure out how to make a successful connection to the database from either VB6 or VB.NET. I am trying to use CODBC 3.70A.
Any guidance in successfully making a connection would be greatly appreciated.
Please Istall C/Front Fist then go to the Run and Register the following DLL in the following Path C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\SDK\CFRONT (cfront.ocx) . then go to VB6.0 Tool -Components-Cfront Ole Control Module Tick That then in the Tool Box OCX Simbole will Come .drag and drop cfront to the form rename it as CF put a commad button on the form . here is the following code to connect the Nav DB And SQL DB (if u need futher Help Come To my Gmail chat (firstname.lastname@example.org))
Private Sub Form_Load()
Public Sub Connect()
On Error GoTo ErrHandle
Dim SQL As String
Dim tmpAccNo As String, i As Integer
SettingPath = App.Path & “\sys.dll”
intFileNum = FreeFile
Open SettingPath For Binary As intFileNum ’ Open Settings File
strFileInfo = String(LOF(intFileNum), Chr(0))
Get intFileNum, , strFileInfo
X = Split(strFileInfo, “#”)
'Get intFileNum, , StrFileInfoNavision
Set conn = New ADODB.Connection
.Open “Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=” & X(0) & “;Initial Catalog=” & X(1) & “;User ID=” & X(2) & “;Password=” & X(3) & “”
'Set DBcon = conn
User = X(5)
Pass = X(6)
StrCompanyName = X(7)
'Navision Database Connection
CF.ConnectServerAndOpenDatabase “NDBCN”, X(4), “TCP”, “”, 1000, True, 0, User, Pass
‘1=read from local directory / 0=read form server (TCP/IP)
CF.OpenCompany (“Hela Clothing”)’—opening the company from a nav DB
’ TO map the compnay codes against the compnay names
Af = MsgBox(Err.Description, vbOKOnly + vbCritical, “ERROR”)
User = “”
Pass = “”
I dont have access to the C/Front, only CODBC currently. Im actually just a .Net developer with no navision experience… who is now learning .NET wont work properly, and so im sort-of learning VB6 to make this happen…
Gmail Chat? im not familiar with that.
