reserved error (-7748) when attempting to link a table RRS feed

  • Question

  • Software: Microsoft Access 2016
    File extension .mdb
    Data source : ODBC
    ODBC Driver : Sybase ASE ODBC driver


    When attempting to link a table from a data source with the configurations above mentioned, the reserved error (-7748) is thrown.

    I was able to pinpoint the problem to tables with nonclustered indexes in the data source.

    My workarround was creating a view of that table to link to Access. This workarround creates a redundancy in the Data Source and as such is not a valid solution for the problem.

    Any thoughts on how to resolve this issue?

  • Hello Joel.Almeida,

    Have you tried to add WorkArounds2=8192 for the affected data source? Could you try check if below blog could work for you?

    Fixes For “Reserved Error -7748” in MS Access 2003, 2007, and 2010

    Besides, could you check if there is any field in the data source which data type is incompatible between Access and Sybase?

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Terry,

    Thanks for the feedback.
    This is a part of a business intelligence application that is used by multiple people on a remote machine farm.
    Editing the registry is not an option in my case.

    Furthermore, where can i find the field types not compatible between ASE and Access?

  • Hello Joel.Almeida,

    To be honestly, I'm not familiar with ASE and I did not know the difference between there support fields.

    I think the Data Source should be a table, right? You could try to link the table's and specific field one by one. Once  one field caused this error but others not, this field's type is  the type we want.

    Best Regards,

    Terry
