how to connect to database using ODBC, where in connection string i will provide only DSN name. User id and Password should be entered dynamically. Like if i want to connect to SQL Server, I will provide dsn name, User id and password shud be entered dynamically. Already there is a form in SQL Server for Logging in, want to connect to tat?
We have windows xp with sp3. The MDAC version on my machine is 2.81.1132.0. We notice that with this version of MDAC we are not able to connect to Microsoft ODBC driver for oracle. For MS ODBC to work we should have xp with sp2 or MDAC version 2.82.3959.0.
Is there any way to connect to MS ODBC using sp2 or version 2.81.1132.0 in XP?
I'm supporting an old vb.net program whose database it connected to was moved from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008. Is there a setting on SQL Server 2008 which will allow ODBC connections to access the database but not allow VB.NET to connect to it programmatically?
If I change the code to use a datareader it I can loop through the data but a data reader is not recommended to pass through the layers and so I'm wanting to create a dataset/data table process. Anyone have any ideas why the dataset/dataTable code is not working properly?
I'm looking for a solution to import or link logs (csv and txt files) to Access using ODBC. These files are in a directory and I would like to link each of them to a table in Access to analyze their content. I'd like to use ODBC rather than the Access' Import Wizard because I want to keep the possibility to change the format and/or delimiters of my files if necessary.I settled an ODBC Driver "Microsoft Access Text Driver" but when I try to open the connection in Access, I get the error "You cannot use ODBC to import from, export to or link an external Microsoft Office Access or ISAM database table to your database".This connexion works perfectly in Excel and enable me to get the data in an excel spreadsheet. I'd like to do the same from Access to use Access' functionalities!
It's apparent I have no idea what I am doing anymore, therefore I'm turning to experts. I would like to 2 things.
1) Make an ODBC connection to our datasource and display it in a Datagrid (table)
2) Make an ODBC connection to a DataSource and Copy several tables to an MDB file. Basically the same thing I accomplish by using the Import Function in Access. Just automated and with some additional items.[code]
In trying to answer the first part of my 2 part question, this is as far as I get. I can't seem to loop through the ODBC connection and assign it to a Datagrid.I usually get an Transoft Error about the Query - or more often I receive ERROR [IM001][Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver does not support this function.[code]
I have a small vb.net application that fires a crystal report through crystal viewer.
The report uses an ODBC connection provided by 32-bit software accounts package, which is installed in the ODBC 32-bit This all works fine on 32-bit XP and 32-bit Win7 with no problems, When run on a win7 64-bit machine the application launches ok, but when it comes to running the report, it prompts for a database logon box for the odbc connection.
When the report is run seperate on its own, on the exact same pc through crystal reports desginer it runs fine, Its almost like the application is not picking the 32-bit ODBC set up is it the case that the connection needs to be coded rather than using the report connection,
I have developed a small ms-access based software with vb.net.
I've added auto-update capabilities to the software (mostly by using clickonce) to simplify the release of new features.
Every version of the software executes the update routine which may update also the existing database.Lately i've made few changes on the database structure adding few stored queries, so i want the autoupdate code to programmatically add these new queries to the existing database and make it perfectly up to date.
I haven't already found a solution to add stored queries to an ms-access database using odbc...I also tried to use the "CREATE PROC" sql statement but it does not seem to work with access databases, even if i create the query form the Microsoft Office Access front-end.I've found some examples that uses ADODB, but i'm using odbc to remain both x86 and x64 compliant.
I have an Access table in which I connect through ODBC commands. I want to delete the 50% of data rows from it. Can anyone knows a string to write for doing that? ALARMLOG is my table. In MS SQL I tryed succesfully the following command :
I have an error "ERROR  [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Data type mismatch in criteria expression". I am using VBdotNet2005 and MS Access as its database, and I can't really get the hang of this error.
I'm connecting to my mysql server using ODBC in vb.net, the database is shared throughout the company because it is used in an accounting program (simply accounting), each user has their own account user/pass to login to the database. I have developped a program that uses the accounting database and combines it with other information, my problem is that at least once a day I get this error when I run my program: "(10061) ERROR [HY000] [MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]Can't connect to MySQL server on"and the error persists for at least 4 hours, for some reason it starts to work again later on in the day.
I'm using Visual Basic/Studio 2010 Express to run my VB program using MS Access database. I'm going to convert the Access database to a SQL Server Server Express data base so I downloaded SQL Server 2008 R2 Express onto my pc with Windows 7. The installation went fine and I actually converted my Access database to SQL server. I did not change anything in my VB program.My problem: When I run my normal program with the Access database (no changes), I now get an error when it executes the following code:
dr = cmd.ExecuteReader. I get the error System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException was unhandled; ErrorCode=-2147467259; Message=ODBC--connection to 'SQL ServerBilotta-pcsqlexpress' failed.
It appears the ODBC is looking for the SQL server eventhough the program is pointing to the MS Access db. How do I get it to NOT look for the SQL db? Is there a default setting for the
ERROR[HY000][Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]Could not find file '(unknown)'. ERROR[IM006][Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager]SQLSetConnetAttr failed ERROR[HY000][Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]Could not find file '(unknown)'
And then it shows me that my code for
If dsLogin.Tables(0).Rows.Count = 1 Then IndexOutOfRangeException was unhandled Cannot find table 0
I knew it must be the driver but I don't know what accdb driver I can use for the connstring.
I have an error ERROR  [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Data type mismatch in criteria expression. and I've been trying to solve this but unfortunately I couldn't get the hack of this error. I'm a newbie in dotNet.

I'm trying to create a program that will connect to my access database and perform a simple query. Then I want to put the data (image and other info) into active directory. But I keep getting this "Declaration expected" error when I'm setting up my connection. I'm using Visual Studio Ultimate.
I'm trying to create a simple vb project (using Visual Studio Ultimate) that will connect to my Access Database (the database consists of regular data and jpeg images) on my desktop and perform a simple query. I have looked at multiple tutorials on how to do this but I can't seem to get it to work. For starter, I don't even know what project to select. Usually, I just go with the Windows Forms Application.
I am new in programming an I am trying to connect to an MS Access database. I am getting the following error message when trying to connect to the database; my code is braking under the following line:
