ODBC Call Failed Error for Query using Linked Tables


Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers

When I run this query from MS Access, I get an 'ODBC Call Failed' error. I have created linked tables in access for the tables used in this query.

Anybody able to help me on this ?

Thanks in Advance.

It's almost certainly nothing to do with your query (SQL) per se.
This is an ODBC problem. This is as varied as there are ODBC drivers out there, but I'd start by trying to open each of the tables in your query to see which of them has a problem. From there it's down to whoever at your company is responsible for the ODBC setup I'm afraid.
