    getting database information


    I have a 10yr old ICL DRS machine with UNIX and informix on it.

    Question:- Could i use ODBC or similar to get the information from the Informix database onto a Windows machine with Access?

    If your Informix is farily recent you may be able to
    get a wire-ODBC (i.e TCP/IP-based) driver for it.

    Have a lot at www.datadirect-technologies.com
    and elsewhere.
