# 2125 ODBC Driver Not Retrieving Data Properly When Used with Adobe Acrobat ADBC and Javascript

I need to know if anyone out there has tried to access data from a PDF form using Adobe's ADBC Connection Object. The methods provided allow one to connect to an ODBC datasource. When my PDF form first opens, I have certain methods already implemented inside the form that make the connection. Must be working or at least making the connection since the familiar DBISAM 'Thank You Dialog' (inherent in the Trial Version) comes up. However, and for whatever reason, I'm not
seeing any data in the fields that reside on my form (Note that I'm using a PDF form for my front end). I've got a demo that works with MS Access driver using an .mdb database file, so I'm wondering if this has something to do with Adobe's ADBC object.

// DSN is dbisamTables, and table name is Customers
var connect = ADBC.newConnection("dbisamTables");
var statement = connect.newStatement();
var execStr = 'Select "FName","LName" From "Customers"';
row = statement.getRow();
console.println("The first name of the first person is: " + 
row.FName.value);  // this is where the problem begins
console.println("The last name of the first person is: " + row.LName.value);
