I have figured out how to use ODBC and Excel on the PeeCee and it works great. But what I really need is to access it from a Sun Solaris box. Can anyone point me in the right direction???

I dont think it is possible to use odbc from sun solaris box. If you still need it, think of something like this. An RMI based service ( easier to develop ) which accepts a query and returns the result in a vector as a serialized object. You can use this service from solaris box. May be someone has better solution. Discuss this possiblity also.
I agree. Here's the link:
