Linked Tables from multiple databases of SYBASE.

I am using MS Access 97 with SYBASE ASE 11.9.2 with odbc driver 4.1.00.28(latest ebf 10719 from sybase).

My question is I have got multiple databases in SYBASE Server say x, y,z.

I am able to link tables from an access mdb to database x with a particular username and password, like this I link several tables in access with database x, now upto here it's fine,

now I link tables in database y with different user name and password.

Access is able to link the tables, but when I try to open the tables in database y from access it says


[DataDirect][ODBC Sybase Wire Protocol driver][SQL Server]dbo.tablename not found. Specify owner.objectname or use sp_help to check whether the object exists (sp_help may produce lots of output)

same things happens if If I do the other way round, in the sense first connect to Y and then X, I am unable to open the tables in X.
 
so I can't have tables from multiple databases in same Access mdb ??

Is this the limitation of MS Access.

Please help me.

I have an Access application that is linked to 8 other different Access databases and one DB2 database, so it is not a limitation of Access alone.

Do you use DSN, and do you have different DSN for each database? You might need it if your passwords are different.

Thanks Chris,
Yes I am using DSN on all users's PCs with same name.
So how do I achieve this with a single DSN and multiple usernames and passwords ??

Thanks so much again.

I don't know if it would work, but I would do passthrough queries in code where I can specify the userName adn passwords.

But really, I think you should have different DSN for your different databases. If not, Access will always be confused.
