MyODBC with Office 2000

Posted on 06 September 2002 by Demian Turner

What\’s the version of MyODBC that works with Office 2000 under Win98?

Version 2.50 and later fails when retrieving the data of the table. You can connect but not retrieve the data of the table.

    At work we use MyODBC to connect MySQL 3.23 on a linux server to Win98 and Win2k clients – seems to work no problem. At home I use the same driver to connect MySQL to Office2k both on a Win2k setup and that also works fine.

    We had one chap who couldn\’t connect but it turned out to be a dll conflict on his Win98 machine. Only trick to watch out for is not to connect as \’root\’ which seems to be the popular choice. We setup a \’nobody\’ user and things went fine from then on.
