Creating a Trace Log

Creating a trace log is particularly useful when you are troubleshooting an issue.
To create a trace log:
1. Enable tracing:
*On Windows, enable tracing through the Tracing tab of the ODBC Data Source Administrator.
*On UNIX and Linux, enable tracing by directly modifying the [ODBC] section in the system information (odbc.ini) file.
2. Start the ODBC application and reproduce the issue.
3. Stop the application and turn off tracing.
4. Open the log file in a text editor and review the output to help you debug the problem.
For a complete explanation of tracing, refer to the following Progress DataDirect Knowledgebase document:
