Working with Access instead of Sql Server

Hi,

I have a problem.
I built an MFC application that connects to SQL Server 7.0 database via ODBC.
This MFC program uses the SQL language.

Now I want to change the database , and to work with Access.
So I created a new access database, and imported the information from the Sql Server database to the
new access DB.

I also changed the ODBC driver configuration to the access driver.

The problem is when I run my MFC program, an error accurs while I'm trying to open the DB tables.
The error discription is as following:
"Could not find file 'D:\MyDb\dbo.mdb'".

('D:\MyDb' is the path of the working directory).

I don't know what is that error means, what is the odb.mdb file ???

I will appreciate your help very much !!!!!

Could be that a select statement in your code looks like select * from dbo.Table1.  The ODBC driver for SQL Server interprets this correctly as dbo being the owner of the table.  The ODBC driver for Access misinterprets the dbo as being the file name of a database.  Check the GetDefaultSQL method of each of your CRecordset objects.

I could be being stupid here, but I think that you've configured the ODBC driver info for the Access database to look at dbo.mdb, but that isn't the name of the actual database.  If this is the case, fixing it is simple - just correct the DSN (I assume this is what you mean by changing the driver configuration) to point at the database you created.

Hope this helps,
Iain

use browse in the odbc configurartor to select the mdb file, this way the path and file will have to be right as you selected it

Why not use msde, it is free and it is 100% (i think) sql-server compatible. The only difference between msde and sql-server is speed. (Plus msde doesn't have any tools such as the enterprise manager.) But msde is still faster than access I think.

All u need is Jet Database Engine that could connect ur Application to the MS-Access BackEnd.Install the latest
MS Data Access Components.Then in ODBC configure ur DSN with MS Access Driver.

ANd finally coming back u said C:\MyDB\dbo.mdb.

is dbo.mdb ur MS-Access File..if not i guess ts system defined databaseobject file..so u have to edit the settings and give the complete path name to the MDB file.

This should solve ur prob..

By the way u also need to Check the Recordset fields (like m_fieldname etc.avbl in one of ur headers
if its propoerly configured or what.

Else go for a separate MFC Wizard and just a simple program to establish connection with Acces Database using those wizards.Check the code there and compare it with ur original source code
