Connection or SQL sentence error (DA0005)


When I try to run a report this error message  pop up

Connection or SQL  sentence error (DA0005)

Exception: CS, Specified network layer is invalid: ODBC

Can anyone let me know what the problem is?  Did I setup my MS access odbc data source incorrectly??


RE: Connection or SQL sentence error (DA0005)

Does anybody know how to solve this issue??

RE: Connection or SQL sentence error (DA0005)

This is usually an installation issue.  Generally, this means you didn't install the ODBC connectivity layer.

RE: Connection or SQL sentence error (DA0005)

Install the software again.  Do a custom install and make sure you have all the connectivities.
