Connecting to data sources

P: n/a
Hi
I want to see data of a Btrieve database from access 2003.
I have DDF files and the odbc driver and have made a data source.
But to connect to this data source,from file menu,get external
data,import, when I try to change the
type of files to 'ODBC Databases' the import window is closed and
nothing happens.
What's on?
Is this the only way of connecting to a data source?

Any thing is appreciated.

I've seen this behavior on PCs with Norton AV installed on it - is NAV
installed on your machine ?

You don't need to disable it but try the following :

Start Norton
--Security Basics / Auto-Protect / Configure Auto-Protect --Other /
Miscellaneous
There you should find a check box labeled "How to keep Microsoft Office
Documents Protected", which you should deactivate and then restart your
machine.

I don't know NAV 2006 but there it should be :

Options - Norton Antivirus Autoprotect - Bloodhount Heuristic

Thank you Jens
Now it is working.It was great!

but now I'm engaged with another problem:I can't see the dsn I've
created.
I created it by Database Drivers 2.0 for Windows wich contains the last

Microsoft-provided ODBC driver for Btrieve, a 16 bit driver.
Ofcourse it is an antique thing nowadays but my only solution.

Thank you
