I’ve just installed Toad Data Point, to try to connect to a Sybase database. According to management and coworkers, it should automagically read the sql.ini file from my Sybase client installation and give me a list of connections when I go into the Create New Connection window and open the SAP ASE option.
Instead, the list is empty, and hovering over the control gives a “SQL Interface file not found” tooltip. Reinstalling both the Sybase client and Toad Data Point did nothing, and the program isn’t being particularly helpful.
Can I get a developer to weigh in on this? What is the “SQL Interface file” it’s looking for, if not my file at
C:\SYBASE\ini\sql.ini as everyone here at my workplace seems to believe? What file is it looking for and failing to find, and what’s the proper procedure for ensuring that it’s there?
