Hi Himanshu -
I'll move this to General Computing, as it seems a better fit there.
If you are getting some error information back from the connection attempts, why not post them in a message here? There are all sorts of things that can go wrong between two processes trying to connect. While we've all experienced the kind of problem you're having now, it's impossible to know what to advise without a little more background information.

hi try this
#include <windows.h>
#include <sqlext.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
// Env Handle from SQLAllocEnv()
// Connection handle
// Statement handle
UCHAR zDSN[SQL_MAX_DSN_LENGTH= "datasourcename";
// Data Source Name buffer
// User ID buffer
UCHAR* szPasswd = NULL;
// Password buffer
UCHAR szModel[128];
// Model buffer
sDWORD cbModel;
// Model buffer bytes recieved
UCHAR szSqlStr[] = "Select * From table Where field='value'";
//SQL string
RETCODE retcode;
// Return code

// Allocate memory for ODBC Environment handle
SQLAllocEnv (&hEnv);

// Allocate memory for the connection handle
SQLAllocConnect (hEnv, &hDBC);

// Connect to the data source "datsourcename"
//using userid and password.
retcode = SQLConnect (hDBC, szDSN, SQL_NTS, szUID, SQL_NTS, szPasswd, SQL_NTS);

if (retcode == SQL_SUCCESS || retcode == SQL_SUCCESS_WITH_INFO)
// Allocate memory for the statement handle

// Prepare the SQL statement by assigning it to
//the statement handle

while (retcode == SQL_SUCCESS || retcode == SQL_SUCCESS_WITH_INFO)
