Default Connection String

I am working on an ACCESS database using the TransferDatabase feature in their MACRO setting and trying to import a table from ORACLE using ODBC connection. I can't seem to get past the "can't find installable ISAM" error message. Can someone please tell me what connection string I can use or to correct this problem? Below is the connection string I am using.

DSN=<DSN_NAME> ;SERVER=<SERVER_NAME>;PWD=<password>;UID=<USERID>; TABLE=<TABLE_NAME>


Thanks

I'm not much familiar with TransferDatabase feature and MACRO settings but I remember some time back I got the same error and it was something wrong with Access. So I think you got this error because something wrong with your access not oracle. Unfortunately I can't remember the how I solved it.

If you want to import tables from an oracle database the it is much easier to use access to pull down the table.

Go to tables
new
import table
select ODBC as table type and log on to the oracle database

Highlight the tables you want.
That's all.
