    Anyone who knows where to download Microsoft Access dBASE Driver (*.dbf, *.ndx, *.mdx) for ODBC connection?? if I try clicking on any of those to configure them I get a popup window error saying, "The setup routines for the Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb) ODBC Driver could not be found. Please reinstall the driver." I click ok, and then another popup error window says "Component not found in registry." How can i solve the problem??? Thanks much in advance!!!!

    I cannot believe this question is not answered?!  Mollysun323, did anyone respond to you directly??  Did you resolve this issue yourself?  I am searching for feedback on this exact same subject.

    Please any feedback you can provide would be helpful to myself and I am sure others.

    You will need to get your Access install CD and add that driver from the install screen. Not all the ODBC drivers are installed by default. You also might want to check out technet or MSDN on the Microsoft web site. If you can not find the driver and need the Dbase data you could export the data as a csv or text file and then import the data into Access. I am surprised that you are dealing with Dbase since the last time I used a dbase application was in the mid 80's

    These forums are for ASP.NET related questions only. What is the relation with ASP.NET?
