64 bit ODBC driver for Microsoft Access

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
Hello,I am trying to connect to one of my Access databases (.mdb file on my local) from ODBC connection. The problem is, I am using 64-bit Xp Pro and it does not see any Access driver on 64-bit architecture. Does anybody have 64-bit compatible ODBC driver for Microsoft Access ? Any other help also will be appreciated....

Server: MSg 17, Level 16, State 1 [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]SQL Server does not e

Hi All, When we try to connect to a sql server 2000 using SQL server authentication, we are facing the below mentioned error msg. "Server: MSg 17, Level 16, State 1 [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]SQL Server does not exist or access denied" But, once we connect to server using Windows NT login from the client machine, i.e., execute the below command in the run prompt and provide the credentials for windows login, we are able to connect to the server using sql server authentication(user name: sa) \\server_ipaddress\c$ When we went though some of the msdn links, found that windows firewall was the major cause. But, in the server 1. Windows Firewall is turned off 2. TCP/IP and NamedPipes are enabled 3. Default Port Number is 1433 Any user, who wants to connect to the SQL Server using SSMS, first have to perform a Windows NT login and then connect using SQL authentication.  Due to the above error, the DTS packages which are executing in a different server are getting failed. NOTE: Even after connecting to the server using Remote Desktop connection in a local machine, SQL authentication fails. Its manadatory to run the command \\server_ipaddress\c$ in each of the local machine. Any suggestion to resolve the above error is very much appreciated.   Thanks in advance, Raksha Hegde

Windows 7 RC ODBC Access driver

Many apologies for posting here, but it's the nearset I can find. I am running the Windows 7 RC (x64) and need the MS Access 32-bit ODBC driver in order to connect to an in-house application. The driver doesn't appear to be shipped with Windows 7 and I cannot find anywhere to download it.On further inspection, the 32-bit SQL Server ODBC driver appears not to ship either and I need that as well.

I need to establish a connection between an Access 2003 database (32 bit) and an 11g 64 bit Oracle database on a server. I am running Windows 7 on a 64 bit laptop. I did a clean install of Oracle 11g for 64 bit. I have no problem accessing the Oracle database via the Oracle SQL Developer. I just have a problem from within Access. I hope someone can help me. I've been fighting this for several months. Thanks in advance!

[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified


trying to install sql server2005 on a windows 2003 server box.

getting msg below at the sql server .  i looked at other posts on trying to uninstall  SQL Native Access Client and norton antivirus.  i could never find the snac on the add - remove programs and this server does not have a virus protection program yet.

here's the history of the installs on the server:

wanted to test a 2005 upgrade so:

  1) installed sql server 2000 then sp4 then restored some databases to it - all OK

  2) tried to upgrade to sql 2005 but ran into problems and left it at that.

had a disk drive crash on the d drive so lost the installs but not the operating system

when the drive was replaced, left alone for a while

then wanted to test a straight 2005 install

  1) removed the broken 2005 attempt

  2) removed the 2000

  3) installed 2005 and got the error on the subject line:

[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data Source name not found and no device driver specified

I get the above error message when running my VB6 sp4 application on a new Win7 workstation (32 bit machine). The app runs fine on a WIn xp sp3 workstation. The app does require a DSN setup in the ODBC section and I setup the SQL connection the same as I do on an XP machine. I also test the connection on the WIN & machine and it "test successfully". After the error above the app returns a runtime error -2147467259 (80004005). I am attaching my connection string:

MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.

Microsoft Application Block for Data Access in .NET


Hi all,

I was rummaging the internet learning aspx and came across the concept of: Microsoft Application Block for Data Access in .NET

It seems great of course. The articles are all early 2003-5 such as


So the question is - is this tech still relevant and should I be using it?



Upsize Your Database: Convert Your Microsoft Access Application to Take Advantage of SQL Server 7.0


What if you need to convert an existing Microsoft Access 97 database application into a true client-server application that is based on a SQL Server back end? If you know a little about Visual Basic and SQL Server, it's easy to make your app take advantage of the power and scalability provided by SQL Server 7.0. Using some concrete code examples, this article takes you step by step through converting the native Jet queries in your Access application into stored procedures and pass-through queries that SQL Server can use. You'll also learn how to pass on parameters when your client-server app calls these SQL Server stored procedures and queries.

SQL Server doesn't exist or access denied while connecting with Access 2010 ODBC

Hello all. I am using Access 2010 and SQL Server 2008 (locally). I can easily connect to server using SSMS and it works excellent. But when I want to import a table to Access 2010 using ODBC, it says that "SQL Server doesn't exist or access denied". It worked previously - almost 3 days ago, but now, it doesn't! Please help! Thanks Mohammad Javahery

ODBC Driver for SQL Server Compact Edition

I know that there is no ODBC driver available for SQL Server Compact Edition version 3.5.  Do you plan to add an ODBC driver in future release? If yes, is it high in your priority list?   The scenario why I am looking for an ODBC driver is to connect an MS Access application to a SDF file instead of MDB file.  This will enable me to easily sync the SDF file with SQL server repository using the new Data Sync Services.   Mario Cardinal MVP Solutions Architect

OMPM script cannot find ODBC Driver

I'm setting up a local OMPM (Office Migration Planning Manager) application, which requires an SQL Server database. I installed SQL Server Express successfully. When I run the OMPM script to create the database (CreateDB.bat) I get the following error: SQL-DMO Install Required: This operation requires the SQL Server ODBC Driver, version 3.80 or later, which comes with SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server Express. I installed SQL Server Express with this file "SQLEXPR32_x86_ENU.exe" Could it be that the ODBC Driver was not registered correctly during the install of SQL Server Express? Alternatively, where can I find the missing driver?
