Linking ODBC tables

Linking ODBC tables

Linking ODBC tables

I have some Foxpro tables that I need to process with Access. I installed the FoxPro ODBC driver and set up a system DSN for foxpro tables.

Now for the strange thing: When I go to File/Get ExternalData/Import and then select the filetype of ODBC databases, the window just closes. I don't get the ODBC selection window at all. Even though the ODBC Databases is in the list of filetypes, selecting it does absolutely nothing!

Any suggestions will be most appreciated.

RE: Linking ODBC tables

I found the answer to this one!!!

It seems that Norton AntiVirus 2006 has a feature that addresses Office addins, and is turned on by defaut. This feature prevented me from accessing ODBC databases from the Access Link/Import dialogs. Once I turned off this feature, everything worked fine.

It would have been nice if this feature displayed a dialog indicating why access was being denied and included a check box to suppress future messages for the same reason.
