OpenESQL under .NET supports both EXEC SQL and EXEC ADO access to managed data sources. There currently exists no common repository
for sharing connection information between ADO.NET data providers. However, we provide a common repository that all COBOL
applications can use to save connection information. This also allows OpenESQL to be source code compatible when using EXEC
SQL CONNECT statements. If you check this option, OpenESQL Assistant automatically transfers the ODBC connection information
into the repository when you CONNECT to a data source.
OpenESQL Assistant also includes an ADO.NET Connection Editor which allows you to manually add connection information.
Once you have cataloged all your data sources in the repository you can uncheck this option.
