Hi,
I am looking for an ODBC driver that will allow me ODBC connectivity to a MS Access Database located in another PC. The constraint is : the PCs are equipped with OSI protocol stack (TP4/CLNP) only and nothing other (TCP/IP etc).

Can I get Such a driver ? Other than ODBC are there any different concepts that will serve my purpose?

Thanks a lot....

Access is a file-based database, not an Application database. There is no such thing as a specialized protocol ODBC Driver for Access.  You need file system access to the FILE SERVER where the MDB file is located. Then use the MS Access ODBC Driver.

Am I missing something here?

Getting the point...Do you have any idea of how to access the file system of the remote host through OSI protocol? Actually without TCP/IP Network Neighbourhood is not working and I am not being able to select the data source. DO you have any idea..how to handle all these things?

Well I think we can access the file system in OSI-LAN through FTAM. Now can anyone give me any information of any Freely available FTAM product ?

Thanks...
