Control Panel -> ODBC Data Sources

Please locate your DSN in the ODBC Data Sources Administrator, click on Configure an dlocate the check box that says

Disable Microsoft Transaction Server and select it to disable the
Microsoft Transaction Server.

Try your MS Access connection again.
If this doesn’t  help, look for patch to the ODBC driver.

PROBLEM:
1. Can't use db_link when connected through ODBC. .  

2. When trying a basic select statement through a db_link you get     ORA-2041 : client database did not begin a transaction .  

3. This fails using 8.1.5.2 odbc driver connected to various versions     of the database.  

4. This will succeed with the 8.0.5.0.0 driver.  

 DIAGNOSTIC ANALYSIS: .     Ct has a Visual C++ application on NT which connects to PO 8.1.5,     which has a db_link to a 7.3.2 database on SCO-Unix.     When doing a simple select from a linked table ct reports ora-2041. .     I managed to reproduce this with 8.1.5 EE as well as various other     versions. .     A sqlnet trace level 16 doesn't show any useful information      between the select and the error message. . .

WORKAROUND:     Use the 8.0.5.0.0 odbc driver.  This is the only other one that I've     tested, I'm not sure whether 8.0.5.x work as well.

If the above doesnt work then

Upgrade to the latest ODBC driver and enable the option 'Disable MTS  support' in the DSN configuration.  

To do this, perform the following steps:  

1. Click Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> ODBC Administrator

2. Select the DSN you are using, then click the Configure button.

3. You should see the 'Disable MTS support 'option listed in the 'Workarounds'  section.  If you do not see this option, you are probably not on the latest  version.

4. It is sometimes necessary to either drop and recreate the DSN and/or  table link in MSAccess, as MSAccess appears to cache DSN settings.  The latest version can be obtained from MetaLink, by clicking on the following:        Technical Libraries -> Tools -> Programmatic Interfaces ->           ODBC -> Latest Versions
