Hi Helen,

It appears that using the * in the string wild wildcards, is not allowed.

I can connect to DB using adrianpref.fdb, but not *pref.fdb.

I can get around this, by searching for *pref.fdb, in my source code, then
connecting with the fullname.

Why not?

Can't understand what you did by way of a "connection script". What kind of
script was it?

In v.1.5, v.2.0.x and v.2.1 you would address this sort of requirement with
database aliases, but your connection string wouldn't look like what you put

Or else I'm missing something...
