I've submitted this question before and I haven't received any answers. I've also submitted this in the database-general category, and between the three questions there's 400 points at stake. Answer my question and I'll credit you the points for all three questions. I suspect that it is not very difficult but I'm not very experienced with databases.
I'm learning sql thru the SAMS text Database Progamming with Visual C++ in 21 days. I'm going thru the example in day 4, which is to load the database engine into an list control. Instead of loading properly, an exception is thrown, with the following information:
Code Meaning = Unspecified error
Source = Microsoft JET Database Engine
Description = Couldn't find installable ISAM.
I also tried using the listings from the cd with the book. Running that project, an error window pops up with the following message:
[MSFT][ODBC Driver Manager][Data source name not found and no default driver specified]
I take it this means something necessary isn't installed on my system. I tried to reinstall all the data access files from the VC6 setup disk like the book recommends, but I don't know what files that installs or where they go. In any case, it still doesn't work. Can anybody help me on what I need to get to fix it?
