Maintaining database profiles

You can easily edit or delete an existing database profile in PowerBuilder.

You can edit a database profile to change one or more of its connection parameters. You can delete a database profile when you no longer need to access its data. You can also change a profile using either the Database Profiles dialog box or the Database painter.

What happens

When you edit or delete a database profile, PowerBuilder either updates the database profile entry in the registry or removes it.

Deleting a profile for an ODBC data source

If you delete a database profile that connects to an ODBC data source, PowerBuilder does not delete the corresponding data source definition from the ODBC initialization file. This lets you re-create the database profile later if necessary without having to redefine the data source.
