Not sure if it's at typo, but the DSN you created was Killerspin_com2 and the DSN you're trying to reference is killerspin_com. Also, if the Database already exists, don't use Create. Click Select. The location ofhte database isn't important, as long as the DSN can see it. You might want to put it outside the source code dir to prevent it from being downloadable.
I was just able to do this using Access 97 (ick!) on Win2k (but the ODBC widget seems to be the same as XP). --- Jonathan Villa <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > Ok, this is what I did... > > Keep in mind I have Xp so I don't know how this all pans out. > > 1.
