    I need all *detailed* parameters to stablish the connection with MyODBC in Windows 98 ODBC.
    All the screenshots or any link to them.

    Your problem is clearly not about MyOdbc but about configuring privileges in MySql. In this very site is a link that have helped us set up correct access : http://www.devshed.com/Server_Side/M...dministration/ by By W.J. Gilmore, March 30, 1999.

    It explains to you that you should get through three hierarchical steps to gain access to your MySql database : 1) set host privileges 2) set then user privileges 3) and finally set db privileges.

    It's been quite a time since I haven't touched MySql, but the hint is trying to be most permissive until you gain access via MyOdbc, then fine tuning only after that.

    Hope this helps.

    Note : I have never found a clear documentation on MyOdbc troubleshooting. It seems as if the privileges aspect is deliberately neglected...
