I'm new to JDBC and I do need help... I'm on a Win 2000 platform trying to access a MS Access database called Manual. I've went into the ODBC DataSource Administrator and created a ODBC MS Access setup for the database, now I'm trying to get a connection to the database via a JAVA application ( As shown below ). I'm getting an exception and I don't know why. I've already searched back questions in this forum but didn't find a solution. Thanks for any help.

and you don't feel like sharing? Can you drop the exception trace and the output from your code so we can have a look too? thanks, Dave

Hi There, try making these changes to your code (old code shown with > infront then followed by the change) > Class.forName("jdbc dbc:JdbcOdbcDriver").newInstance(); Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
Do you make use of a user name and passward? If you dont then try > Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc dbc:Manual","",""); Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc dbc:Manual");
Make sure that about the capital letters in the above statement regarding the datasource .... is it actually "manual" or "Manual"
