I am currently doing the ground work on some code that will require access to a paradox db via odbc. I have all the right software and haven't done much other than use the default settings. For some reason it keeps telling my the "the operation muct be performed in the current session" and exits. I have tried using both PHP / BDE and neither are having the desired effect. In both cases Ijust get the error above. If anyone has any info on what settings to look for I'd be greatly appreciative.
