The sun odbc/jdbc bridge will connect...

But it isn't a Type 4 driver

I don't think a Type 4 driver exists...  Can you use a "proper" database?  (PostgreSQL, Firebird, MySQL, etc)?

--------------

MS Access is a popular toy database. Even so, you won't find free type 3 or 4 drivers for it. Your options are the rather expensive IDS Server or rmiJDBC. The JDBC-ODBC bridge is your last resort.

As far as I know you don't need any extra driver, you can connect to a Access database from Java using:

DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:MS Access Database;DBQ=" + pathMDB, user, passwd);

Good luck,

Start, Settings, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Data Sources (ODBC)
>Select MS Access Database
Then fill in the appropriate fields and you have your driver set up for connection.

If you will be using java to connect to MS Access database, you can connect to it this way.   Here is a tutorial which shows how it can be done.

You are rigth JK2429, but with the path I suggest you don't need a ODBC link. That's better if you have to distribute your software.

Sorry, every body, but due to some technical problem I couldnt appear. Also the problem was that The user is not allowed to use the ODBC control. So it should be set automatically. Or some ODBC less driver.
