Odbc Phone

Odbc Phone

Ever want to talk directly to an ODBC datasource? Well now you can. Just pick up the Odbc Phone and yac away.

It is basicaly a UI for VFP's Sql Connect() and SqlExec(). For kicks, I added Sql TablesOffsite link to
(), SqlColmns(), SqlGet/SetProp() and a bunch of COPY TO FOO TYPE this and that buttons.

The interface to the SqlProp functions is very raw. In a way, thats good because utilities that are too cooked often get in the way of function. ( broken link )

Here is the Inno Setup script to install Odbc Phone.
#define SourceExePathName = "d:\dev\util\sql\OdbcPhone\exe\OdbcPhone.exe"
#define ExeName = "OdbcPhone.exe"
#define AppVersion GetFileVersion( SourceExePathName )
#define AppName "OdbcPhone"

AppVerName={#AppName} version {#AppVersion}

Name: desktopicon; Description: Create a &desktop icon; GroupDescription: Additional icons:

Source: {#SourceExePathName}; DestDir: {app}

Another Util: ( broken link ) - shows how many rows and much space each table is taking up.

Maybe someday I will merge those two into one utility, then add the option of e-mailing the results.
