I have installed mySQL with myODBC  latest version. But it says on the first line of the textbox on the right hand side "not found", but it showed the details of myODBC correctly below it. What is going on? Thanks

Nothing is going on I think...

It says the same thing here, and I don't have a single problem...

If you are talking about WinMySQLAdmin of course.

things that you should check while using myODBC with mySQL
1. check as if it is running as a win-nt service...
even on XP machines if ur running mysql ... you should change the defaults in the ini file...like remove the password and user name from the mySQL Admin thing.
plus you will see something where you can change the orientation of mySQL running... like as mysql-nt something and stuff like that
choose the mysql-nt there for myODBC to work corrently.

Once this is out of the way... go to the ODBC manager and create a new ODBC connection. you will be given a screen to fill out the details.

where there is host name give the name of your PC or try local host or the best thing would be to try the IP.

the username field should be root .. password can be empty.

and make sure that the mySQL server is running. the rest is pretty normal stuff. cheers .

How do you add db and tables under WinmySQLAdmin? Do I have to use the ugly DOS interface? I clicked on the tab called database/table or something like that. But all of them are freezed/disabled...
Thanks

Do not use WinmySQLAdmin to manage your databases.

Download mySQL Control Center or use PhpMyAdmin or anything other mySQL GUI to do so

mySQL CC is available for free at mysql website.
