Help installing ODBC professional drivers

Help installing ODBC professional drivers

I am having difficulty setting up the ODBC drivers to connect from MS Access 2000 to Accpac Plus 6.5A.  During the install, I use the following paths:

data dictionary ":\3RDPARTY\WORKING"  (default)
data ":\ASP\DATA"
extension "CPE"

I then create a new database in MS Access and connect to the ODBC driver. However, whenever I try connecting MS Access to Accpac, I get a connection failed error.  The setup process seems pretty straight forward.  Any ideas on what I may be doing wrong?

Thanks much,

I should also mention that I am currently running Windows 98.

I found the problem.  It turned out to be the path was incorrect in the Accpac configuration files.  Thanks anyways.
