When I use data link or even without data link with just regular ado obdc connection I get a Castrophic error or it won't even connect to the mysql database.Ive read online and it sais to apply the patch but it still doesn't work?

How to repeat:
Create a dsn connection.Start a new project and start a datalink connection and try to connect you get the error when you try to pick an initial catalog.If you don't pick an initial catalog the project will not work!Also try just an ordinary ado connection it still doesn't work!

Thanks for your bug report.  I was able to reproduce this by not selecting an initial catalog as stated in your post.

Any suggestions how to resolve this? I know its not my dsn connector because Ive tested my project with access with a dsn connection and it worked fine.

Ive tried using the obdc 3.51 patch 3 and it still won't work!Ive noticed users saying to keep the intial catlog blank and it will work but it doesn't only part way yes some querys work but not to the full extent therefore the connection is not flawless and the project will not work correctly.
