Hi Thomas,

first and foremost: compliments for including a SQL interface. Connection with MySQL works perfect. How can I access MS SQL Server. I tried various connection strings and always get the same error message.

Do I need special drivers?
Do I need to use a sideway?

Best wishes

Hi Achim,

the current and official DataWarrior 5.0.0 does not support SQL-Server nor PostgreSQL.
However, I have built support for both database engines into the current development
version, which you may download as zip-file containing 4 files, which you need to replace
in the official installation. The links are for Windows:
and for Linux/Mac:

Since I don't have access to a SQL-Server not a PostgreSQL database, I could not test it
and would be grateful, if anybody you would let me know, whether it works.

There are some other bug fixes and new functionality coming with that version, e.g. the generation
of random molecules or predicting missing values from chemical structures using machine learning approaches. This functionality is not described in the manual, but is rather straight forward.

Enjoy, Thomas
