i have set up SQL Server Express 2005 as a backend and MS Access 2007 as a front end.  The operating system on both machines is Windows 7.  I have set the login and user name on the SQL Server.  I am trying to establish an ODBC connection between the Access 2007 to the SQL server and I keep getting an error message:
"Connection Failed
SQL State 01000
SQL Server Error 1385
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]ConnectionOpen
(Connect())
Connection failed:
SQL State 08001
SQL Server Error 17
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]SQL server does not exist of access denied

I have this same system set up on XP boxes and no problems connecting using SQL server driver.

Please help.  Thanks.

I have two machines set up the  with Access 2007 and SQL Express 2005 with  operating system Windows 7.  

The other machines I referred to are a different system entirely using XP as the operating system but the same SQL express 2005 and Access 2007 programs.  This system works.
