Hi all,

I'm trying to connect superset to a sybase database.

I could already connect to it using the following code:

quoted = urllib.parse.quote_plus({FreeTDS};Server=Database;UIDPWD...)

Now when I try to insert this to Superset's "SQL ALCHEMY URI" I get the following error:

ERROR: {"error": "Connection failed!\n\nThe error message returned was:\n(pyodbc.Error) ('IM004', \"[IM004] [unixODBC][Driver Manager]Driver's SQLAllocHandle on SQL_HANDLE_HENV failed (0) (SQLDriverConnect)\")\n(Background on this error at:"}

[IM004] [unixODBC][Driver Manager]Driver's SQLAllocHandle on SQL_HANDLE_HENV failed (0) (SQLDriverConnect)")

I went through some google related issues but It didn't help me.

I also tried installing pip3 install python-sybase with no luck. It returned:

$ pip3 install python-sybase
Collecting python-sybase
  Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement python-sybase (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for python-sybase
You are using pip version 19.0.3, however version 19.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command.

This helped me:!topic/sqlalchemy/H8ppyC4-3Cg

Now I got this error using mssql+pyodbc://user:pass@host:1433/dbname?driver=FreeTDS.

[FreeTDS][SQL Server]Erro do SQL Anywhere -265: Procedimento 'schema_name' n\u00e3o encontrado\\x00 (504) (SQLExecDirectW)\")\n[SQL: SELECT schema_name()]

I don't know why is it printing in another language but translating it would be:
Procedure 'schema_name' not found...

Got it to work with pyodbc also..

driver = "FreeTDS"
conn = pyodbc.connect(driver=driver, server=serv, database=db,port = prt,
                                   uid=usr, pwd=passwd)
cursor = conn.cursor()

Got it to work..

Now I'm facing the following error:
('42000', "[42000] [FreeTDS][SQL Server]Erro do SQL Anywhere -131: Erro de sintaxe próximo de 'LIMIT' na linha 32\x00 (102) (SQLExecDirectW)")

I know that sybase won't accept limit in the query but I think that is due to superset's automatically inserting the limit value from here:

And also because it works in plain python..

how can I by pass it?
