Viewing data from a linked table in Microsoft Access

I have a case management system which can export data in CSV format. I have then created a linked table in Microsoft Access however, dreamweaver (coldfusion) does not "see" the linked table, only tables with a .mdb postfix. The linked table has a .ldb postfix which I assume is the problem.

I wish to avoid having to import the csv file into a table in Access every day - i.e. if the Access database can look to the CSV file for its data, and the website looks to the Access database, everthing can be done automatically.

Do you have any solution?

You can connect to the csv file directly using either a dsn or a connection string.

Creating another dsn using the Microsoft Text Driver would be the easiest.
Then you can create a connection in DW to access that file and bind the data anyway you want.

If you are using a connection string then you would simply replace the Microsoft Access Driver string with Microsoft Text Driver.

The linked table in Access is set using a path in Access -- and that path is based on YOUR setup. Not only do you have to have BOTH databases/files (and the ldb is NOT the linked file), you have to replicate the path that was on YOUR computer.

alexhogan is right -- you need to have a second connection to that table/database, and use it directly.
