The GENESIS_MSG_FILE environment variable specifies the xfODBC error message file.


The path and name of the xfODBC error message file. The default error message file is sql.msg.


The GENESIS_MSG_FILE environment variable is automatically set when you install xfODBC.

To generate a system catalog, the dbcreate utility must be able to locate the error message file. If GENESIS_MSG_FILE is set, dbcreate uses this setting to locate the file. If this variable is not set, dbcreate attempts to locate the file sql.msg in the GENESIS_HOME\lib directory.

Setting location

The environment. For client/server configurations, GENESIS_MSG_FILE must be set on the client and the server. For services such as web servers that use the xfODBC driver, you can use the Env. variables field in the xfODBC Setup window to set this environment variable on the client.
