Dwc & ms sql

Dwc & ms sql

I have used DWC successfully with Access databases and MySQL databases. However, when I tried using it with MS SQL, the wizard works fine with the connection and allowing me to choose the specific data as usual. However, when I got to preview the page (I have also published it live on a Web server to view), no chart data shows. Just a gray box with the path link to the dataparser.asp file (screenshot attached). Does DWC not work with MS SQL databases?

When it just shows the file name, that usually means the path to that file is incorrect. Are you sure you uploaded the file and it is referenced correctly? This problem shouldn't have anything to do with the database used.

Yes I did, both locally and on the Web. I even went through some of my PHP pages that I used DWC with to see the path locations and all pages and sub pages were identical with the paths that were created by the WebAssist software.

Do you have a url where I can view the problem? That might allow me debug a little so I can spot it.

OK, I get a 500 error when I try to browse the data: untitled_dataparser2.asp

A 500 error tells you nothing it is basically a general error that indicates debugging is turned off and no general error is returned. Do you have access to an error log so you can find the error line number?

Ok, I had mucked with those files a whole lot over the past coupleof days and do not know why it's showing a page display error.

I've created a fresh new "site" for this. And have the same error. Can you see if you can access the file (and sub-files) from this link and take a look:

chart.asp

I will also see where GoDaddy stores its error logs for a site.

Now I get a blank page when I view: chart_dataparser1.asp

Now I am completely confused; because the dataparser page is always blank (at least it is in all of the sites I've been able to get it to work in - PHP/MySQL sites). Only thing I have ever noticed on that page is source code.

I didn't alter any source code on this one & uploaded it exactly as it was on my computer. After all this, I'm guessing DWC can't work with MS SQL Server.

When you view the dataparser page it should show the data for the chart. It is always blank in DW, but it would have code when viewed live.

The problem may be in the data file or the dataparser file. What happens when you try to view the data file directly?
