Have windows 7 installed and access 2010, but when trying to use the Oracle ODBC through ms access, I get the following error:
ODBC - call failed
Microsoft ODBC driver for Oracle Oracle ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified(#12154)Microsoft ODBC Driver Manager Driver's Sqlsetconnectattr Failed IM006 0  Microsoft ODBC driver manager driver's sqlsetconnectattr failed (#0).  
I installed access 2010 on my xp machine and it works fine.  Also can't get linked data manager to work or any of the wizards.  Uninstalled and reinstalled and still get the same issue.
