I copy pasted the name in the dialog box wherein we make connections, even if it was not being recognized in the dialog box.
And it works!!!

Can you Post the full statement which you are using for DB Connection?

Generally we do with Square Bracket. Like  [a.b.c]

The problem is Qlikview does not recognize the full name of the DB itself to make a connection.

if the DB name is a.b.c then ODBC Connect to Data Source screen only shows a  - so basically it omits anything after the dot
