I have a document that reads data from an access 2.0 file
when this document was in word 6 the process worked fine
Now in word 7 (the machines were upgrades to Win 95) I get an error that states the information could not be found.
Something about no Data Source There is data in the record
I checked and the file exist where stated.

 The exact error is

Microsoft Word- ODBC Error:[Microdoft][ODBC Driver Manager]
Data Source name not found and no default driver specified
Sql State: IM002
Return Code: SQL_ERROR

The Code for the Field is

{DATABASE \d "c:\\quickstart\\quickstart.mdb" \c "DSN=MS Access 2.0 Databases, DBQ=c:\\quickstart\\quickstart.mdb, FILE=RedISAM" \s "select Study_Number from \"QS_Temp\"" \f "1" \t "1"  \* MERGEFORMAT}


NO
I did that plus one other slight change and it worked thanks
Lock it and it's yours
