To access a database from heitml you must create an ODBC data source. The data source must have a unique name. This name has to be specified through the datasource parameter in the heitml configuration file. The data source for the demo application is named heitml. The following instructions apply to unixODBC.

To create an ODBC data source, either use the ODBC Administrator of the ODBC distribution, e.g. ODBCConfig, gODBCConfig, use odbcinst, or edit the odbc.ini file.

Creation of an ODBC data source width ODBCConfig is as follows:

  1. issue ODBCConfig from the shell.
  2. In the 'ODBC Data Source Administrator' window, click the 'System DSN' tab.
  3. Now click on the 'Add' button.
  4. Click on the entry with the driver of your favorite database system to highlight it and then click 'Ok'.
  5. In the window coming up, enter heitml as the Data Source Name and provide further database specific information. Depending on the database systen this might require to create a database and database user first.
  6. When you are finished, save your changes and exit.
