MDAC is Microsoft Data Access Components.

It is a set of dll's that provide support for accessing data through ODBC and OLEDB connections. It contains such things as the various OLEDB data providers (for SQL Server, Oracle, etc), as well as the DLL's which implement access technologies such as ADO.

Presumably you install mdac 2.6 or higher which can be found at msdn.com, I think the latest version is 2.8.

Please start new questions in a new thread, it makes searching easier and it is aloso very annoying when a poster sees that someone has sent an answer to a question only to find it's not a response but another question.
