Im trying to link to a FoxPro table from MS SQL.  A consult created the link and it worked at one time.  Its been a while but now when I try and run the following query I get an error:

SELECT *
FROM OPENQUERY(FUELFORCE, 'SELECT *
FROM testfuellog')
GO

OLE DB provider 'MSDASQL' reported an error.  
[OLE/DB provider returned message: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's SQLSetConnectAttr failed]
[OLE/DB provider returned message: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's SQLSetConnectAttr failed]
[OLE/DB provider returned message: [Microsoft][ODBC Visual FoxPro Driver]Cannot open file \\smf00mabcxxx\fuel\data\testfuelforce.dbc.]
OLE DB error trace [OLE/DB Provider 'MSDASQL' IDBInitialize::Initialize returned 0x80004005:   ].

Can anyone tell me what the problem is?
