    Thanks & Regards,

  • below is the code that we are using for connection

    Dim myConnectionString As String
    myConnectionString = "DRIVER={Optim Connect Driver for ODBC 3.5};qptdpname=BINDURL1;queryProcessor/noThreads=true;OneTdpMode=1;debug/logFile=ODBC_MYDSN_%p.log;BindUrl=attconnect://;misc/language=enus;DefTdpName=EROS;UID=" + USERNAME + ";PWD=" + PWD + ";"
    Dim myConn As ADODB.Connection
    Dim Common_data As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

    Set myConn = New ADODB.Connection

    'On Error Resume Next
    myConn.Open myConnectionString

  • Hi RevathiMylapalli,
    As far as I know, the code produced on Windows 7 SP1 using ADODB cannot be run on any other version of Windows because of  the IIDs differ.
    About how to handle this issue, you can refer to Pak-Ming Cheung’s answer.
    Best Regards,
