Mysql Access? Follow

Greetings,

I have been playing with the demo pro version for several days.  Is there a way to have bartender access a remote mySQL database?  For instance, via an IP address?  I have read every help file and watched the database access help videos, but this feature is not discussed.  There is a competing software out there that does this via a wizard by simply entering the IP address, database name, etc. and it worked instantly, however, I really like the look, feel and usability of Bartender better...

 

Thanks in advance!

BarTender connects to databases via ODBC and OLE DB.  You would enter in the database connection details through these intermediary interfaces.  We have plenty of customers using MySQL.  See the following training video for details on connecting to a database in BarTender:

Greetings Ian,

Thanks for your prompt response.  As I mentioned, the training videos I have found and the ones you posted above do not contain instructions for using these drivers to connect to a mySQL database.  Is there any documentation anywhere that would help me out?

I suppose it will be in the documentation of the MySQL ODBC driver or OLE DB provider.  Have you not looked there?  A quick Google search gave me this example connection string for specifying a IP address: Server=myServerAddress;Port=1234;Database=myDataBase;Uid=myUsername;Pwd=myPassword;
