Hello. I am trying to connect to an access database on my company's web host. I have tried a number of possibilities without success. Here is what I'm trying right now:



Do I need to use a different driver? Is the connection string incorrect? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help.

"jdbc:odbc://<ip_address>;dsn=<dsn_name>;uid=<user_id>;pwd=<password>;"



Is this the actual string that you used? You did substitute real values, didn't you?

Nope. Your "ip_address" part is meaningless. If your database is "remote" then you'll need to configure the DSN appropriately. Whether this is possible or not depends on the ODBC driver; some can be configured for databases on other machines and others cannot. If your next question was going to be about MS Access, its driver is in the latter category. Unless you map a drive to its "remote" location, which makes it basically local.
