I think you might be a bit confused there. It works fine with the DSN= 
(or at least it does here) but isql uses SQLConnect that does not accept 
the DSN= format, tahts for passing to SQLDriverConnect

If you have iusql (the unicode version) that does use SQLDriverConnect 
so you could try what you are doing with that.

I don't know what the informix driver will do with the string though, I 
seem to remember that it had some of its own setup files that needed
