Hi i trie to connect to an odbc source on my system and i get:


"Data source name not found and no default driver specified"



I registred the odbc datasource, tried both as system DSN and user DNS, I can use the datasource with othere applications without problems.



Any clues?

Well:
- Just specify the DSN name in the Database field. (is this case sensitive? Don't really know)
- Also specify the ODBC method of access.
- Don't forget to specify the database type
- if needed specify the username and password.

That should do the trick.

Hope this helps,

Matt
