We are having compatibility problems with Access 2003 to Access 2010.  All ODBC connections are correct but I still get an error message.   The connection setting work in 2003 and match the same configurations in 2010.  Please help.

I think that I figured it out but I can't figer out how to fix. In the ODBC Connection, there are no drivers installed by default via Office 2010. I installed full but still can't find it.

are you running it on 64bit os?

If so, try launching c:\windows\SysWOW64\odbcsys32.exe

Additional info that might be useful to you:

Click on Start > Control Panel > Use the drop-down-menu > Click on "All Control Panel Items" > Administrative Tools > Here you use the mouse curser to highlight Data Sources (ODBC ) and then you right-click on it. You click on "Run as Administrator" > Click on "Properties" > Security > Edit > Advanced > Here you have to turn on or simply "tick" all boxes under "Allow" except "Special Permissions" which should be left unchecked. Then confirm by "Apply" ,"OK" "Apply" "OK" to close everything. Now you can click on the Data Sources(ODBC) and under "Drivers" you will find everything there.

let me know if none of these helped.

Also, I know it sound silly but be sure that when you manually installed odbc from office 2010, that you didn't install 32bit version on your 64bit os.

No, actually, I am silly!!! it appears that I did have the 32 bit installed rather than the 64 bit. I had both versions in one source via volume lic and I assumed that it would pick the 64 by default on a 64bit OS. wrong!!! THANKS
