When defining a catalog you can specify just a data dictionary. You can leave the ini field blank if you have no INI defining files.

What you specify in the data dictionary field is the path to the providex.ddf file that got created when you created a dictionary. This will be in your application directory likely with your other program files and data files.

For example if the DDF is located at C:\myapp\data\providex.ddf, then use C:\myapp\data.

The catalog is just telling the PxPlus SQL server where the data is. Defining it on the server means clients don't have to know where the data is and just point to a catalog to access the data defined in it.

Make sure the PxPlus SQL ODBC driver is the same version as the PxPlus SQL Server for compatibility. Older versions did not use the catalog and won't have the field.
