Error Connecting InfoPath form to Access Database RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    I am working on a project at work where I am using infoPath Designer 2013 to design a form which is connected to a sharepoint online list.

    For demo purposes, I trying to connect a field of type drop-down list box to an external data source.

    The data source in this case is and MS Access 2016 Database. When adding external data source which is an Access 2016 Database the following error is displayed

    "An unspecified error occurred while attempting to connect to the data source.  Microsoft Office InfoPath supports only Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Office Access databases.  Check the connection to ensure that it uses on of these databases."

    Any possible solutions are most welcome.

    Thank you in advance 

    Kindly regards
