Ah, I see, so it is not using a DSN. You can still create a direct
DSN, though. This is the route I'd use:


Access is just giving another interface to the data. Unless you need
something from the access driver, I would go directly to the data.

Let me know if you're in the area another time (I won't be in town
next week) and we'll grab a beer or something. (What ever happened to
beervolts in the US?)
