I am getting this error while trying to connect and link in tables from Access vba to SQL Server.
Connection Failed:
SQLState: '01000'
SQL Server Error: 53
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen(Connect()).
Connection Failed:
SQLState: '08001'
SQL Server Error: 17
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]SQL Server does not
exist or access is denied.
I found solution on the link below, but i am not sure how to implement it.

That is not a timeout error but a permission one as it clearly states:

"[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][DBNETLIB]SQL Server does not
exist or access is denied."

You either miss-typed something or you need to open remote access to that SQL server and/or the ports.

Agree with Zberteoc, this is not a time out but you either
- have used the wrong name for the SQL Server in your connection string (check FQDN and if you can ping this name)
- or have used a wrong username and password in your connection. or your Windows account is not able to connect if you use SSPI for security
- or the SQL server doesn't allow external connections for TCP or Named Pipes (check with your DBA)

Hi,

another possible error is if you do not use the FQDN (full qualified domain name) of the server. If you are working in a different domain and you only use the short name of the server itself then it can happen that the server name cannot be resolved (depending on the quality of your local DNS).
So instead of "YourServer" use something like "YourServer.domain.domain.com". If you have a named instance, add that at the end like: "YourServer.domain.domain.com\MyInstance"

Cheers,

Christian
