DATA CONNECTION TO ACCESS ?

Not applicable
Hello



I have just upgraded to Acrobat Pro 9 from v.7 pro.



I'm sort of new at this, mostly with data binding. I must be missing something, I'm having trouble creating a new connection to my Access 03 database.



So far, these are the steps I've taken:



File>New Data Connection

Name New Data Connection: CLAIMS

Get Data Description From: OLEDB Database

Connection String:

Build...

Provider; Select the data you want to connect to: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers

Next»

Specify the source of data

Use data source name: MS Access Database



OK, now how do I specify where to get the db?

Previously, I was able to browse & select the file.



My database location address:

D:\101 BILLING\FORMS\ADOBE\CLAIMS.MDB



(this is not on a server - it is just on a partition)



I know it's staring at me right in the face - but I just don't see it.



Thanks for your help.



Ruth

The file is choosen when you set up the DSN connection in Windows (outside of Designer).
