MS Access, MySQL & MyODBC .....

Hi,

Has anyone had this problem ?

I am using MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver, with MS Access 2003 and MySQL 4.1.11
standard log.
I created my tables in MS Access, then exported them via ODBC to an
externally hosted MySQL database (fasthosts) . I then import-linked
them back into my MS Access database.
Before I import linked them back, I edited the tables in MySQL so that
the PK & Autonumber was set and added a timestamp field.

The problem I seem to have is that when I use the Timestamp field in
MySQL, I cannot seem to update current records on my Access forms
without getting the error 'Reserved Error (-7776)'. If I remove the
Timestamp field, the error goes away, but then I get the usual #Deleted
problem when adding records etc.

I know the timestamp is required, but I cannot seem to get arround this
unknown error ?

Appreciate your help.

Thanks

David

Your Access linked table needs to be informed about structural changes you
make to the MySQL database table. Your linked Access table will not
automatically be aware of new or altered fields in MySQL. Change a field
definition or add a new one and I would expect quirky errors to pop up such
as you describe.

One way to force Access to notice the new table structure would be to,
rudely and crudely, delete the linked table and then link it back again.

OR

You can use the Access utility (if it is installed!) from the menu
[Tools_Utilities _Linked Table Manager_Update Linked Tables] . This will
prompt Access to note structural changes and update the linked table
information accordingly.

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,

I have a friend with a database application on a web server. He has invited me to attach to it so I can extract data from it periodically. I have a few questions... 1) I have a DSL connection to my ISP and I think my buddy has one too. Can I establish an ODBC connection to his data- base? What information would I need to gather that would allow us to do this? 2) Can I "turn the connection on & off" at will? Are there any

Is an apostrophe a character of special significance to MySQL in a way that would cause "Bob's dog" to become translated into a 12-character string when typed into a MySQL memo field?

When I read "Bob's dog" from a memo field in a MySQL table attacted to MS Access via MyODBC driver, it displays as "Bob's dog" - a twelve character string. the '...
