  2. Open Database Browser and go to Advanced tab.
  3. Copy text into SQL window from ShipperInfoTable and Execute.

**Note:** Be sure to adjust the dbo.Store.ID = 1001 line to match the actual Store.ID for Control database as not all databases use 1001 as the main Store.ID.

  2. Copy text into SQL window from CreateTableIndex and Execute.
  3. Copy text into SQL window from CreateTrigger and Execute.

Create a "Shipper" User in SQL with limited rights

  8. Select all checkboxes on right side.
  9. Click “User Mapping” on the left side.
  10. Select the StoreData database to associate this login with this database.
  11. Click OK and close Management Studio.

Create an ODBC connection

  1. Open Control panel in Windows and go to Administrative Tools.
  2. Open Data Sources(ODBC).
  3. Click on System DSN tab.
  4. Click Add and select SQL Server entry from list.(Bottom of list)
  5. Name Data Source ControlSQL.
  6. Server value will be \
  7. Click Next.
  8. Choose “With SQL Server authentication…” option.
  9. Click “Client Configuration” button.
  10. Select TCP/IP and uncheck “Dynamically Determine Port” option.
  11. Set Port Number to 1433.
  12. Click OK.
  13. Login ID should be shipper.
  14. Password will be autoshipper.

  18. Test the data source and verify that you are able to connect to the server.
  19. Click OK to close ODBC Administator.
  20. NOTE: If you are using Windows x64 edition then the ODBC connection you created will likely not appear in UPS. This is because UPS Worldship uses a 32-bit ODBC connection and by default when you create an ODBC connection in 64-bit windows it is only available to 64-bit applications. If you encounter this problem you need to create a 32-bit ODBC connection by going to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.EXE. Create your connection under this ODBC configuration utility and then it will be available for use within UPS.
