MS Access

Above is a window with the error I'm receiving when trying to connect to a Microsoft Access DB from VS Cobol 3.0.  I connected it under tools which appeared successful.  Help!

RE: MS Access

Make sure that the DSN that you create is the same bitism as the program that is issuing the CONNECT. If your project is target x86 then you should use the ODBC Data Source Administrator (32-bit) shortcut under the Start menu group Micro Focus Visual COBOL-->Data Tools-->Data Connections. If your project target is x64 then you should use the 64-bit version of the tool.
