MS Access JDBC Driver -- Connecting MS Access with Java

To connect Java with MS Access, you need a JDBC driver. Although Microsoft do not produce a JDBC driver for MS Access, you can use the Easysoft JDBC-ODBC Bridge as a MS Access JDBC driver. Use the JDBC-ODBC Bridge to provide the connectivity layer between your Java code and MS Access database. The MS Access database can be on the same machine as your Java or a remote machine.

JDBC-ODBC - Creating New Tables in MS Access Database

This section describes how to create a new table in a MS Access database through the JDBC-ODBC driver.

JDBC-ODBC Bridge Driver

This chapter provides tutorial notes on using the JDBC-ODBC Bridge driver with MS Access database. Topics include creating MS Access database file; creating DSN for MS Access database files; inserting rows to and retrieving rows from Access database.

Needed - JDBC Derby or ODBC-JDBC bridge

I would like to use Access (2003) as a front end for a Java DB I am working on in a separate java project. These speed and ease of using Access would be a godsend.

I would be extremely grateful if anyone could point me in the right direction.

So far I found one commercial ODBC-JDBC bridge that failed to run on 64 bit Win 7. Other interfaces I tried either didn't work, were just hard to set up, or didn't provide the functionality you get with Access.

Hopefully I am overlooking something easy.

Any tips, clues, or links to a driver or method to get Access connected to a jdbc DB would be extremely appreciated

On Using Pass-through Queries

You might want to send a SQL specific query in Microsoft Access directly to the underlying ODBC database server to improve performance. You may do this by using a pass-through query. Running such queries is the topic of this tutorial.

Question Changing SQL user pw causes ODBC connection issues

I have a network that I am running with a SQL 2008 R2 server where I want to change the pw on the user associated with a SQL DB that my Access 2003 database accesses. I changed the pw on the SQL user and when I go into the ODBC connection in Admin tools I get a successful connection with the new pw, but when I try to open the Access database that is using this DSN I get an ODBC connection error. I tried relinking the tables with the Link Table Manager, but I still seem to have this issue.

What do I need to do in order to change a SQL user so that the ODBC connection for my Access database works? The SQL DB is running SQL 2008 R2 running on Server 2008 R2 and the client machines are running Access 2003 on Windows XP SP3.


I have an Access 2003 database linked via ODBC using MYSQL ODBC version 5.1 It works very well apart from UNION queries with more than 1 UNION

If I run a query with 2 UNIONS then I get an Error

ODBC – call failed. (Error 3146)

Looks like an issue with the MYSQL ODBC Adapter.

IF I write it as a PASS THROUGH query running on the server with the same adapter DSN, then it is fine.

Anyone any ideas of whether it is possible to get round this issue IN ACCESS without resorting to temporary tables OR PASS Through query.

Access 2000 change ODBC query

first time poster.

I have several Access(2000) Queries created that are querying data from a SQL database.

I inherited these queries and everything was working fine. We recently changed our SQL server and our IT person deleted the old ODBC connection and created a new one to the new SQL server.

Now my queries do not work.they see data but it's data from the old server (which is still running) and not the new server.

I work alot with Crystal Reports and it's very easy to 'change' database location. However, in Access I can't seem to find a location/screen where I could edit the connection string associated with the Query

query fails

I have a client running MS Access 2003. The have a database that runs queries against a ERP system. They MS Access database resides on a network share. They access the ERP data via a ODBC connection. They had a user whos hard drive crashed and they had to give her a new system, when she tried to run her queries they fail with a jet error that a fields does not exist in the table. Someone made a copy of the queriy, when she runs the copy it succeeds? Thereis no difference in the queries and I do not know why one fails and the copy does not

ODBC -- call failed. | Oracle ODBC

I have an Access 2003 Database that resides on a virtual windows 2003 server that is giving me an error when I attempt to create a linked table or update any linked table that is using an odbc file dsn. The database being connected to is Oracle.

Here's the full error.

Now the weird thing is, the error is only occurring on a virtual machine while on my local development box, it works fine.

Both environments are using identical tnsfilename.ora files.

The failing server is running Windows Server 2003 with MS ODBC for Oracle v2.576.3959.000.
The dev box is running WinXP Pro with MS ODBC for Oracle v
