ODBC, MySQL & Access 2003

I'm not especially new to databases and I have used ODBC before with
other data sources, but I cannot seem to get Access 2003 to talk to
MySQL 4.0.15.

I have MySQL running with new tables defined, but I cannot get a
connection to those tables via ODBC using MyODBC 3.51.

Can anyone point the way?

Many thanks,

Steve

Have you been able to get the MyODBC 3.51 [Test Connection] to report
success?
And if so -
Have you tried to create a linked table?

Hi Tom,

I have NOT been able to get MyODBC to report success, nor have I been
able to link a table.

I've followed the directions regarding the set-up of ODBC sources, but
it doesn't seem to work.

That's important to know because your original post implied that problem
lies somewhere between Access 2003 and MySQL 4.0 . However, no version of
Access can possibly function with ODBC until you actually get ODBC working
first.
I've followed the directions regarding the set-up of ODBC sources, but
it doesn't seem to work.


This doesn't tell us much. Either your usr/pwd permissions are being
refused, or the installation was faulty, or the ODBC subsystem on Windows
is somehow broken on your machine. I suggest troubleshooting in that
order.

And if you want help, you have to give us some clues! Server or local
MySQL installation? Does ODBC work with other database systems, Access
for instance? Are you sure you have proper permissions to the specified
database and MySQL isn't simply refusing to talk to your identity?

In any case, you would be wasting your time trying to connect ODBC until
you *first* get that initial connection test to work.

Hi, I have a local user on our network running MS Access 2003 (on Win XP Home), which needs to connect to a Back-End MySQL DB on our Cobalt Qube 3 Server. I installed the correct software to run the Access on their Win XP OS, and installed the ODBC MySQL Driver 3.51. When I test the connection in the ODBC panel, CONNECTED ! Then I open MS Access, and great, the app works.

I am using the MySQL ODBC 3.51 driver to link three relatively small MySQL tables to a Microsoft Access 2003 database. I am finding that the data from the MySQL tables takes a hell of a long time to load making any kind linkage with my Access data virtually useless. I have the MySQL driver setup in as a USER DSN. The MySQL data is sitting out on a server and the Access database is running locally. The network connection is very...

Hi, I have an MS Access database in which the tables have been exported to a MySQL DB on a Cobalt Qube 3 server and then import linked back into MS Access. This was all done via an User DSN (ODBC) I created on my local machine. I then put my front-end on a shared directory on our network. I have one other user who needs access. I added a shortcut from this front-end onto their desktop, but whenever I run MS Access, it says it
