Please note that this is not a valid connection string.
The HDBC-odbc API docs are available at
and give the example string of:
as well as a link to the Microsoft document that describes the string,
which lives at:
That URL also contains error message descriptions. For your state
01S00, it lists:
Invalid connection string attribute
An invalid attribute keyword was specified in the connection string
(InConnectionString), but the driver was able to connect to the data
source anyway. (Function returns SQL_SUCCESS_WITH_INFO.)
Your fix may be as simple as prepending the string with "DSN=".
