Using SQL 2005 (client and server) on my desktop, I can access the tables in my two databases "A" and "B"   I've created.  They are identical.  But when I go to import or import  data from Table A to Table B:  I get this error:


===================================

Could not set up data flow connections.

The connection type "OLEDB" specified for connection manager "{0F36F8D6-3491-4017-A0FC-6C043B9B11F6}" is not recognized as a valid connection manager type. This error is returned when an attempt is made to create a connection manager for an unknown connection type. Check the spelling in the connection type name.
