Failure on retrieving data from Sharepoint with MS Access

Hi!, i have a trouble and i hope you can help me. I have to retive data from sharepoint view, for this, i'm using an access file to read sharepoint data. I've created an ODBC x64 that points at my access file.

When i tried to generate the connection from my qlikview file, y get this connection string


But, when i try to generate my "Select" Command, qlik says "SQLState IM002 Error Code:0 [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source not found and no default driver specified.

Then, i testing writing the sql command directly on script window, but when i run it, qlik says " SqlState: 42000, ErrorCode: 4294965487, ErrorMsg: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Cannot update. Database or object is read-only."

I've checked my sharepoint, access and ODBC Connection and there is nothing wrong. I replicated every steps in another PC, and it works perfectly.

What can i do?

if you installed the apropiated driver:

you must look on your server for the ODBC Data Source Administrator that can be found in Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Data Sources (ODBC). (on 64 bit Windows systems, you'll have to explicitely call c:\windows\syswow64\odbcad32.exe ) and add the driver to the System DSN tab.

Note: When install driver choose for all users instead current user
