Hi,

I'm using getCatalogs() method in DatabaseMetaData to get listing of all catalogs(database) in SQL Server 2000. I've created a DSN say 'demo'. When I create DSN, it shows me all the databases. But when I make call using getCatalogs() method in DatabaseMetaData, it doesn't return 'model' database. The others i get i.e. master, msdb, Northwind, pubs, tempdb.
Does anybody why???

Thanks

Amrit,
What is the relationship between "model" and "demo"? I'm not sure if I'm following the question.

Off the top of my head, you may want to check that the new database has the appropriate permissions.

'demo' is the DSN name which I've created.
