Hi

I have recently moved to SQL Server 2012/Access 2013.

I use MS Access to export and link data from SQL Server, the system has worked fine for years, but after moving to SQL Server 2012 and Access 2013 any MSSQL fields that are of Data type MONEY show as empty fields in the MS Access, unless the value is £0.00.

I have Googled this in various forums and see that other people have overcome the problem by changing the datatype to numeric in MSSQL, however this not an option for me!

I have attached

What's the data type in Access? The correct one should be Currency.

Hi Vitor

The datatype shows up at currency, but it can't be changed anyway as it is a linked table.

hmm, and a custom format on the Access side? What results do you get with a passthrough query?

Not sure what I have or how I have done it, but glad to say that it is now working. It may be to do with the ODBC drivers that I was using.

Thanks for all your help anyway!

So you reverted to the "SQL Server" driver?

Would not like to comment, as I tried so many things! "All's well that ends well"!

As I said earlier, I could not exactly tell you what I did to resolve the problem. If I new I would tell you! The drivers on the server that seem to work are as per the attached screen shot.

NB this may be nothing to do with resolving the problem.

Yes, those are the possible two ... but you only use one, and which may indicate a (or even the) solution.

Just hold the mouse steady over the linked table name in the Navigation window, and the Tool will show the full connection info including DRIVER=SQL S..?

I see. Then - in the ODBC Manager from where you took the screenshot - there will be an entry named MSSQL.
Look up the properties of this. This will reveal the driver.

That's the client for SQL Server 2012, so makes sense.
