#1: MS Access with MyODBC

Posted on 2010-07-25 02:19:13 by Jerry Schwartz

[I have three PCs running Win7 32-bit that do not exhibit this problem.]

- I have a PC running Win7 64-bit.

- I installed MS Office 2007 (which is 32-bit).

- I installed the 64-bit version of MyODBC (latest GA). (If the exact version
matters, I'll get it on Monday when I get back to the office.)

- Using the normally-accessible ODBC administration applet, I created and
tested a System DSN.

- I am unable to see the System DSN from MS Access or any other Office
program.

- I created and tested a User DSN.

- MS Access can see and use the User DSN.

Other than proceeding with a User DSN, are there any suggestions out there?

[JS] I'm pretty sure I tried that. Here's the fly in the ointment:

"The SQLDataSources function that is called in a 32-bit application returns
only system DSNs for 32-bit drivers but returns user DSNs for both 32-bit
drivers and 64-bit drivers."

In this case, I have a 32-bit application (MS Office) that needs to see the
MySQL ODBC driver. Because the OS is 64-bit, only the 64-bit MySQL ODBC will
install. Since the driver is 64-bit, I am creating a system DSN for a 64-bit
driver. As quoted above, a 32-bit application cannot see a 64-bit DSN.

The only workaround is to create a user DSN. Fortunately for me, most of our
PCs have only one user.

And, of course,

"To maintain backward compatibility, no resolution for this problem is
currently available."
