I am following the exact steps in connecting to an access database

http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Infr._Map_Server/enu/2013/Help/0001-Getting_0/0016-Exercise16/0023-Conn...

 

and I get the following error when I test connection

 

An exception occurred in FDO component. RDBMS: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified.

 

Mapserver 2013, on Windows 7/64, I have the MS access 64 drivers installed.

 

any help is appreciated.

Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb) is the 32-bit driver

 

Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb) is the 64-bit driver

 

There should be a choice to pick between the two. It should be the second one.

Thanks

Brilliant:smileyvery-happy:

 

If I can now choose between the 32bit and 64 bit drivers,

does this mean that 64bit Map3D, Civil3D and Map server can now connect to MS office 32bit.

or do I still need to follow the proccess as outlined here

http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=18307898&linkID=9240697

to install the MS 64bit drivers.

Your AutoCAD variant must use the Microsoft Access driver of the same bitness.
