We have an available connection between SQLSERVER 2005 and a converted ACCESS database from 97 into
ACCESS 2003.
We exeperience a problem for what concerns the linking if ACCESS 97 is not converted.

The problem is we cannot convert ACCESS database on production because a lot of users use ACCESS 97

If an microsoft expert could help we would enjoy so much here is the error message.


Le fournisseur OLE DB 'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' du serveur lié 'access' a retourné le message 'Impossible de démarrer votre application. Le fichier d'informations du groupe de travail est absent ou ouvert en mode exclusif par un autre utilisateur.'.
Msg 7399, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Le fournisseur OLE DB 'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' du serveur lié 'access' a rapporté une erreur. Échec de l'authentification.
Msg 7303, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Impossible d'initialiser l'objet de la source de données du fournisseur OLE DB 'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' du serveur lié 'access'.

Did you follow the advice in BOL regarding this?

As stated here:

Hi Gustav,

I've looked at the advice in BOL.
I've showed it to my Director and he tried to understand with me but he says it is not that the problem.
It is just how to create a linked server from SQL SERVER 2005 and ACCESS 97.

Then you may need to rephrase your question. What is linking to what and what version(s)?

Is it just an Access 2003 frontend attached to tables in an SQL Server?

The database is SQLSERVER 2005 on which we do some query.
For this operation we need data which are on another computer in the Local ARea Network.
Those data are stored in ACCESS 97.
So it is not Access 2003 frontend with SQLSERVER.
It is stored procedure on SQLSERVER 2005 which need data from ACCESS 97.
The solution we tried was to create a linked server to ACCESS 97 to read the data we used Jet.

Maybe that now the question is easier to understand.
Sorry for the vocable but I am french and I do my best to try to explain.

Thank you for yor help.

OK, but for the linked server the error message you receive (in French) is similar to the message here:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Industry_Specific/Financial/Simply_Acct/Q_23321583.html#a21370281

Quote:

That's with the registry change, and without the registry change, I get;
    OLE DB provider "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0" for linked server "SADataJET" returned message "Cannot start your application. The workgroup information file is missing or opened exclusively by another user.".

Even if the advice in the BOL is followed, I have had troubles connection the mdb file. In those cases I manage by granting user Admin of the workgroup file to have full access and no password. Access (JET) will use Admin as the default user name when no workgroup file is found.
