[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Optional Feature not implemented

Posted on 2004-10-28

Hello, I have a program from work created by our IT team which runs a program that is a training aid for us. The training data (I think) is written using Microsoft access. Basically the problem is that I can use the program if installed on a Windows 98 or 2000 machine, but running on an XP Pro or Home machine the following error messages are given when the program tries to load the data for the topic I am reviewing:

SQL State: S1C00
Native 106
Message: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Optional Feature not implemented

SQL State: S1010
Native: 0
Message: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Function sequence error

Short of making one of my computers dual boot XP, 98 (which would mean Installing 98 first and loosing my current build of XP) which I could do. Is it possible to change something that allows this program to work in XP. I am not computer expert, Do I need to change the database in Access itself, how would i do that.

How does XP differ from 98/ 2000 which stops this program from working. Is there an SQL driver I need to add to my XP list, and could this have some bad impact on the running of XP?

If you think it can be made to work on XP or you can shed some light on this problem, I would be very interested in your views and ideas.

    For the second error look at

    you can at least go to your IT people with this information and see if they can offer some help.  It might simply take a recompile of the application to use the data access drivers thay your XP machine needs to use.
