    hi all,
    im having an issue connecting the program my company uses to the database ive specified

    when i try to run the program i get data source name not found and no default driver specified.

    after doing some research i realised that the pc is 64bit and the drivers are 32 so i went into the syswow folder and configured them from there exactly how our other pc's here are configured yet when i run the program i still get the same error...its really been bothering me as i cant work it out.

    any advice would be greatly appreciated

    the 2 systems dsn's installed

    the first is a driver do microsoft access.mdb

    and an openrda driver (which has been installed)

    the file dsn is in C:\program files\common files\odbc\datasources\ "file name"

    and the file dsns content is

    [ODBC]
    DRIVER=OpenRDA
    Database="name of database"
    Server=OpenRDA
