Default MS-Access2003-Abt Select data source screen

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to access my sql server database through MS-Access 2003. (My System configuration is OS-VISTA and MS-OFFICE 2003). I have completed my ODBC configuration first. Then i have created blank database in MSAccess 2003. Then i am trying to link my database-tables through File->Get External Data->Link Table. "Select Data Source" screen is not getting populated automatically on my machine. Due to this reason i am not able to access my link my tables.

It will be very helpful for me if you suggest something on this...

Thx & Regards

Select the Tables object, then select Insert > Table > Link Table, and then when the link table file explorer comes up, use the FileType pull down and select ODBC data sources.

I find provider statements and programmed interaction work better than ODBC and linked tables with SQL, and is faster. But ODBC linked tables are easier to work with.

Did that help?
