Erlang and Mysql database connectivity problem

I wanna to put my problems over here,Hope i ll get your suggestion to use it

For my web application “HiPe Result publisher in Erlang” we need to use the database to store data,so we headed into it.

Just we used to start “mysql” and created a table followed by inserted some values those are described here:


CREATE TABLE `test`.`test_table`
`first_name` VARCHAR(45) NOT NULL,
`last_name` VARCHAR(45) NOT NULL,

INSERT INTO `test`.`test_table`
(‘Matt’, ‘Williamson’), (‘Matt’, ‘Williamson2’), (‘Matt’, ‘Williamson3’);


after that,

We have started to enter the code to connect with the database in erlang

In erlang shell,<by typing the ‘erl’ in terminal’>

ConnString = “DSN=mysqldb”.

2){ok, Conn} = odbc:connect(ConnString, []).
3)Results = odbc:sql_query(Conn, “SELECT * FROM test_table”).

but here,I got “Exception error,no match of right hand side value{error,”No SQL-SERVER INFORMATION AVAILABLE”},connection to database failed}.

The same problem posted by some one but i need to get the answer

waiting for your valuable one!

    I was curious about your problem so I tried myself. Here’s my try.

    Eshell V5.7.5 (abort with ^G)
    1> application:start(odbc).
    2> ConnString = “DSN=astro1_development”.
    3> {ok, Comm} = odbc:connect(ConnString,[]).
    4> Results = odbc:sql_query(Comm,”select * from calls”).

    I don’t know why my query worked and yours didn’t, but here are things that might be different and might matter.

    1. My DSN was a system DSN in Windows XP.

    2. I tested the DSN with the ODBC Connector in the Windows Administrative Tools.

    3. I’m using an up-to-date version of Erlang.

    The error message in your problem did concern me. It refers to “SQL-SERVER”. This might be a generic message or it might refer to “Microsoft SQL Server”. Is there anything in your setup that might send the ODBC to an SQL server driver rather than a MYSQL Driver? It is a selection in the definition of a DSN.

    I hope that this helps.
