ERP to Notes via ODBC

I have an agent that extracts data from our ERP system into Notes via ODBC. The agent used to run on a schedule on the server with no problem. Recently, I was not able to get the agent running on the server through scheduling. I can still run it from the Action menu, but if I schedule it I get the following error:

"ODBC General Error: LS:DO- ODBC could not complete the requested operation., Exiting".

Without seeing the code or knowing anything about the environment, I can only offer a few suggestions for items to check:
  • Confirm that the target tables/views that you are accessing still exist and have the same structure that you are expecting.

  • Confirm that the user ID and password you're sending still have rights to the tables/views that you are accessing (have a DB Admin check it outside of Notes).

  • Confirm that the ODBC connection is still configured properly (if possible, test it from another application).

Do you have comments on this Ask the Expert question and response? Let us know.
