Read ODBC by Lester G @ 6/16/2017
I was thinking that I might need to relink the tables? and I have no I idea how to do that.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

If memory serves the Security Seminar shows how to link Tables with code.

How do I use ODBC in Access 2013 Runtime

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Why is runtime the factor?
If you create your db in Access then ship it and a user has Runtime not full version it should still work.

Read ODBC by Bob Mandrell @ 7/3/2015
I use DBA Manufacturing at work.  It is a 32bit SQL Firebird flat relational database.  I can get the ODBC connection to test successfully in the 32 bit Data Source Administrator, but when I set up the 64 bit connection, both of them fail.

I have both a 32 bit and 64 bit driver installed but when you look at them in the "uninstall programs" dialog they both have the same name.  I can't seem to get the Access 2013 to look at the 64 bit and the DBA to look at the 32 bit driver at the same time.  I have read that Windows should automatically make this distinction but it is not or  I am doing something wrong.  I desperately need to solve this problem.

Read ODBC imported table not refreshing by Cam S @ 1/25/2015
I have imported source data into a table from an SQL server using the ODBC database connection, but when I hit "refresh" changes made in the source data aren't pulling through.  
I can use the linked table option but don't want users to be able to change the source data from access.  Any suggestions?

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Why not hide the Tables and lock down the Forms so they can't be edited?

Read ODBC by William B @ 5/9/2014
I just finished Expert 20 and I was hoping that you would touch on ODBC links. We have an old program that stores the information in FoxPro Dbase format and Access 2013 dropped its support of Dbase imports. Before I upgraded, I could link to the file. Now, I have to convert the files to XL and then link. That means that the data is not current. I don't need to make changes, but I need to read the current data. I tried to use the ODBC import and I could not figure it out. I did not know where the drivers were or the DSN files. There were too many options that were unfamiliar to me. Can you point me in the right direction?

Reply from Richard Rost:

I could do a whole separate seminar on ODBC. Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of FoxPro around here so I really can't say what that specific issue is, but perhaps if I get some time in the near future (or there's more interest) I can put together a separate mini-seminar on ODBC connections.
