I am writing an integration that involves database access. I am told it will not work on the client site unless MDAC is used. That includes ADO and ODBC. I have found some .NET stuff for ADO and ODBC that is a seperate download. If I use that will I meet my MDAC qualification?

I'm not sure, but if this really is the case, you may have posted on the wrong forum.

Damn you and your example of perfectly relevant speculation.

Uty, some connections and commands will only work with certain versions of MDAC. If you have MDAC 2.8 on the client side everything should work.

If you are using .Net stay away from ODBC unless you are using a mysql database. I am not sure if MDAC 2.7 will work with .net completely. I just don't remember.

I did it a lot of research and it seems if I use ADO.NET it should be fine. And MDAC apparently only needs to be installed on the server side

Oh you are doing a website. Then yes you should be fine.

No not at all, writing an application that will connect to a hospitals record information system, figure out what studies are associated with that patient, and then display them in another software package.

I have done this thing plenty of times before but the two ends of the software I am integrating are new to me, which makes it more complicated then I'd like it to be
