Hi wizardofmiracles,

This error occurs when the provider "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers" is selected as the driver when creating a connection within Dreamweaver MX. This provider, like all others, requires a very specific set of parameters formatted in a specific way. Currently, the connection code Dreamweaver MX writes does not work with this Microsoft OLE DB provider.

Please have a look at the following TECHNOTE:

To avoid the error use any other provider. A complete list of available providers is available by creating an OLE DB connection and clicking the Build button.
