saving MySQL database connection

Recommended Posts

I've got a connection between a drawing and a mysql database. Now when I close the drawing and reopen it and edit record information an error shows that the database can't be accessed?


When I detach the record and re attach it again it works fine...


This doesn't seem very useful. Anyone any idea?

After some more testing it seems that every time you open an drawing you have to resolve the objects that have the database connection by:


- selecting them all

- select ODBC in the info palet

- find row by value (I used ID) 

- press ok


Feels like a workaround but it works...
