The SODBC_CNVFIL environment variable indicates that an xfODBC conversion setup file is to be used and specifies the path and name of the conversion setup file.


The path and name of the conversion setup file for the system catalog you want to regenerate.


You can specify a conversion setup file before you use dbcreate or DBA using the SODBC_CNVFIL environment variable. Alternatively, you can specify a conversion setup file as you use dbcreate or DBA via dbcreate’s -i command line option or the Conversion setup field in the Generate System Catalog window of DBA.

If SODBC_CNVFIL is set ahead of time, DBA and dbcreate automatically use the conversion setup file whenever you regenerate the system catalog. In addition, tables you delete in DBA are also marked for deletion in the conversion setup file.


SODBC_CNVFIL should not be set until the conversion setup file has been created.

Setting location

The environment. For client/server configurations, SODBC_CNVFIL must be set on the server. (The conversion setup file must also be on the server.)
