Reading from an Access database on Mac


Reading from an Access database on Mac

Hi all

I would like to read data from an MS Access database (mdb) under Mac. To do this on Windows, both DataExampleSource and AccessExampleSource can be used. But the problem is that AccessExample source doesn't want to work on Mac (I don't remember the error message, but please, let me know if any of you were able to use it) and DataExampleSource can't be used probably because ODBC is shown inactive under Tools/Show Database Drivers.

Do you have any idea how make ODBC on Mac or any other way to read from an mdb file?

Hi Szilard,
unfortunately I don't have access on a mac, so I cannot give any founded advice, but did you start a google search for odbc problems on mac OS encountered when using java programs?
