In order to use an OpenEdge data repository in EA follow the steps below:

1. In the Open Project dialog, select the Connect to Server checkbox. This is in the upper right corner.

2. Click on the [...] (Browse) button, as you normally would to browse for a project. As you have selected Connect to Server, the Data Link Properties dialog displays instead of the Browse Directories dialog.

3. Select Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers from the list.

4. Click on the Next button. The Connection tab displays.

5. In the Use data source name field, click on the drop-down arrow and select the ODBC driver you have set up to connect to your OpenEdge repository.

6. Enter the User name and Password.

7. Select the initial catalog.

8. Click on the Test Connection button to confirm that the details are correct.

9. If the test succeeds, click on the OK button. If the test does not succeed, revise your settings. Note, do *not* do this test *after* setting the Extended Properties in step 13.

10. Click on the Advanced Tab.

11. Specify ReadWrite under Access Permissions.

12. Click on the All tab.

13. In the Property Value field, edit the Extended Properties value to: DefaultSchema=PUB.

14. After you have clicked on the OK button, the Logon to Progress dialog displays.

15. Give the connection a suitable name so you can recognize it in the Recently panel on the openStart Page dialog.

16. Click on the OK button to complete the configuration.

This will return you to the Open Project dialog where you can click on Open and you will now be using the new repository.
