i cannot link tables in access 2003 to my AS400 machine, i used to be able to easily with access 97. but access 2003 just blocks everything.
I have tried changing sandbox Mode from 3 to 0 and even 1 but this doesn't seem to change anything
it stops with the usefull error message "Reserved error (-7756); there is no message" anyone have any clues?
could it be the ODBC driver not working with Access 2003?

My ODBC drivers have been dropped off during the migration to 2003 from 97 (there were versions 2000 and 2002 in between).

Can you create an new dsn and test the connection? You may have to find a new driver on the net for this.

Why using access, if there is an AS/400 with DB2 that is several thousand times faster end it's relyable. Why using MS if you don't have to?

DB2? don't have/use it, i am combining data tables from excel and other sources too.

i eventually managed to get it to accept connection and link tables, by:
updating office 2003 to office service pack2
installed the latest ODBC driver for the i series
set the sandboxmode to 0

this has also stopped it suggesting i upgrade to jet 4 version 8, but always asks about blocking unsafe commands!
ms although cumbersome provides the end users with pretty spreadsheets

You allways can make pretty spreadsheets, with data retrieved directly from the AS/400 :)
