ODBC Driver Manager error

ODBC Driver Manager error

ODBC Driver Manager error

I am running Windows XP with MS Office XP and recently started to get the following error message when I wanted to open a third party program.  The error I get is:

[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified

Can someone help me solve this problem?  Is there a way to reinstall a program that would correct this? I have attempted by repairing MS Office XP but it does not solve the problem.  Thanks for your help.


RE: ODBC Driver Manager error

This error means the Data source the program is expecting doesn't exist any more. Can you reinstall the program?
