I have cobol programs that connect to oracle with connect / When I want to use the programs in visual studio I have to change the connect statement to
connect to adodsn. Is there a solution for this?
I am assuming that you are now using .NET managed application so you need to use ADO instead of Pro*COBOL, is that correct?
If you are using the Oracle Data Provider ODP.NET then you should be able to connect as SYSDBA or SYSTEM but the syntax using "/" will not be recognized as a valid user/password in an ADO connection string.
You might want to run this by Oracle as it is really their software that controls this and not Micro Focus.
