Connection String Changes


I hope this is the right place to post this question. I cannot seem to paste anything into this window, which is extremely annoying. When I do, I lose control of this window and have to start all over again.

When we migrated from Sybase client (Adaptive Server Enterprise?) 12.5 to 15.5 there were changes in the connection string format:

Under Sybase 12.5, connection strings typically looked like this:

Provider=Sybase.ASEOLEDBProvider.2;Data Source=APPLICATION;Initial Catalog=R01223;User ID=$USER;Password=$PASSWORD

The equivalent string for Sybase 15.5 looks like this:

Provider=Sybase OLEDB Provider;Data;Initial Catalog=R01223;User ID=$USER;Password=$PASSWORD

Now, in 15.7, the connection string appears to have changed again:

Provider=ASEOLDB;Data;Initial Catalog=R01223;User ID=$USER;Password=$PASSWORD

Is there a way for me to upgrade to 15.7 SP136 without having to force another connection string change?
