Recently, I installed PB8 and found the error message "Catalog tables could not be created and are not available to use" when I tried to connect to Access database(Access 2000) on Win98SE.  The same problem happended while last time I tried to connect to ASA database using PB7.  Is that a general problem and how to fix it?

Did you try in the Database profile setup ODBC (if you are connecting through ODBC) dialog box to give the name of the Powerbuilder Catalog table owner in system tabpage.

And look in help for catalog tables may brings some positive results.

Bhatti,

What do you mean?  Is that mean I need to supply the name for the PB Catalog table owner field?  What name should i use?  dba?  Actually, I haven't set any password to the database file.

Sorry Ken,

What I wrote was nonsence. I just thought about the ODBC connection to SQL-Anywhere.

I think you should look the ODBC Driver first. Is it update etc. and the ODBC connection to Access.

Secondly look the DBA-rights for the system tables. May be due to the less rights not creating the catalog tables.

Please let me know after this check.

THANKS

Hi Bhatti,

Still can't be created.  I've tried to download DAC from microsoft but no effect after installed.  I've checked with PB installation and found that no ODBC driver for MS Access is included.

Really feel frustrated with it.  I wonder why so little response on it.  I don't think the problem only happended in PB8 only.

Dear drvannacult,

Yes, it works fine in PB7.  But coz' i just upgraded to pb8, I don't want to fallback.

However, I have come across the same message when I using the PB 7 with ASA.  So it should be not version dependent but PB version plus database version dependent!

Hope that someone can help!

Regards,

Ken.

Hello Ken,

Did you find ODBC driver for MS Access?

For Access is most important is ODBC Driver. I wrote, did you check the DBA rights. May brings some positive results.

Dear Bhatti,

I've checked, and tried use admin account but still got the message.  For ODBC driver, I don't know where to download.  I've installed the most updtead MDAC from Microsoft, but still can't fix the problem.  Please advise where to download the driver.  Thanks.

Hi Ken,

I think you can try by www.mocrosoft.com in the "download center" section.
