Yes! I've been successfully able to connect to GoDaddy MySQL database. But only through lots of trial and error and only through help with customer support. First off, what kind of server do you have with them? Is it a shared hosting or is it virtual dedicated or dedicated. The method is hugely different with each one. I'm checking this regularly because I'm trying to get a question answered, so let me know and I'll try to share the knowledge.
Its a Windows Shared Hosting plan...
my connection works great when i upload to the server, so i know that the
communication is setup properly, but i want to be able to connect to the
tables to be able to bind and setup my procedures without havign to hand
code it all..
Im use to using MSAccess locally and remotely so setting up the DSN locally
so i can configure the pages and since the setup is the same on the server
once uploaded everything works fine..
but now with this setup this i can only see once i have uploaded the pages
to the site..
ASP, SQL2005, DW8 VBScript, Visual Studio 2005, Visual Studio 2008

I was able to connect to the MySQL database by going to my godaddy database list in the hosting control center. I picked the database I wanted and clicked on the "pencil" to view the details of the database. Then I clicked on the configuration icon. I highlighted the entire box of ODBC 3.51 settings and copied them to the connection string. I was able to connect and to test. it shows all tables, but now when I go to live view I get an error message that says "Microsoft VBScript compilation error 800a0408 invalid character"
Thanks for the great information
