I am running Windows 7 Pro and I am trying to establish a SQL server connection for a 32 bit Access 2003 database. The SQL Server database is running SQL 2008 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 OS. I am using the 32 bit ODBC configuration utility from the Windows\SysWOW64 directory called odbcad32.exe. Attached are screen shots showing the different steps for creating the connection. In the 4th sceen shot where I would change the default database it does not appear in the drop down. However I have been able to connect successfully from another Windows 7 and XP Pro machine. If I use the same credentials on my Windows 7 machine that connected successfully on the other machines I do not get my instance name in the drop down when I attempt to change the default database. Any ideas on how to get this connection working would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Experts!!!
