    Sybase as Travel database

    Prerequisites

    Client computers must install Sybase  

    Automatic setup

    As long as the central database have set up Sybase as the Local datatype, everything is automatically set up for the user who have been assigned travel rights in SOAdmin. The central SuperOffice.ini file have the information so SOLoader.exe sets up the local datasource.

    As long as an update prototype has been generated, the user may now perform a local update by clicking the travel icon in the navigator:  
    As long as you're logging in to the local database on travel, the icon will look like this:

    Manual setup

    Default paths set up automatically are:

    local_archivepath=c:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\SuperOffice\SO_LOCAL
    Local_Datapath=ODBC:SuperOfficeLocal

    The ODBC datasource will default put the local database file in:

    c:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\SuperOffice\SO_LOCAL\DATA\SoTravel.db

    If you want to change the location of the local document archive or the travel database, you need to edit the users SuperOffice.ini file and the users ODBC datasource SuperOfficeLocal. You may change the name of the datasource as long as you also change the Local_Datapath=ODBC:XXX where XXX need to be the new name of the local datasource.

    Change the local datasource

     

    And make sure the local SuperOffice.ini now says:

    Local_Datapath=ODBC:MYTravelDB
