I am upgradeing from Sales CArt Pro 3.7 to 5.1

After following the upgrade steps in the doc, I got following error when clicked the order button.

Could not open data connection. Error:
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no
default driver specified
The Invalid ConnectionString is defined as: False

I can veriry the database string in Frontpage.

I am using Frontpage 2002

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

When you ran the salescart wizard, there is a point where you can specify the name of a dsn, and you specified false. You need to rerun the wizard and specify the name of a dsn if you have one from your ISP or use the "dsn-less" connection which will work most of the time and leave the dsn blank.
