I have a SQL Server hosted at discountasp.net and just cannot figure out how to connect to this server. Also, I have stored procedures on the server that I normally use to query and write data. How is this accomplished in activeVFP? Thanks in advance.

Did you check the example in the demo??   http://thetechconsult.com/demo/default.aspx?action=sqllist


    oSQL.LogIn(['Driver={SQL Server}; Server=avfpdemo.db.6054633.hostedresource.com; Database=avfpdemo; Uid=yourUID; Pwd=yourPwd;'])
    oSQL.cSQLCursor = "tCursor"
    oSQL.Execute([SELECT  Au_fname as First,Au_lname as Last,City,Contract  ]+;
              [ FROM Authors ]+;
              [ WHERE au_lname like '] +lcLast +[%' order by au_lname] )

I have followed the example in the demo. I've been using the same connection string in my vfp apps to connect to the remote SQL database. The error I get is

Caught .NET exception, source: SQLLIST.AVFP 0000e2i1002o err#= 11 line= 104 Function argument value, type, or count is invalid.11 Function argument value, type, or count is invalid. .NULL. .NULL. .NULL. .NULL. .NULL. c:\avfp5.61demo\activevfp.dll message: c:\avfp5.61demo\activevfp.dll


Just can't thank enough to you and others in the VFP community.

Yeah, you'll need to work thru the errors, dude.  That's an error in your foxpro code, not the SQL connection
