The GL company within Designer is pointing to an ODBC data source configured in the User DSN Tab.


The GL Company ODBC Data Source must be configured in System DSN Tab. To check the data source open up Microsoft FRx and click on Company - Information, then select the company that you are loading data from in Expresslink. Click on the System Specific tab and make note of the DSN listed here. Click on the Define button and look to see if the DSN name is listed on the User DSN tab or the System DSN tab. If it is on the User DSN tab a new datasource needs to be setup. See .
