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"
