Error message 'HY000 user cancelled' when trying to retrieve tables from MySQL database.


I am setting up a WinXP PC with the MySQL odbc driver to connect using MS Access to my MySQL database.

It is hosted on a Linux server at present.

I can connect successfully, at least when I use the test facility on the odbc driver confguration page, but I get an HY000 user cancelled error when I actually try to link to any of the tables in it.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks in advance
