Why do I need to install Access engine?

Where Excel needs no extra work, I needed to install Access engine to start my experience with Qlik-Sense desktop/cloud.

All my data are in MS Access.

I attended the Qlik Tour Workshop in Dubai yesterday.

I installed the Access Engine but nothing changed.

I spent the night thinking the 64 or 32 dilemma

Couldn't you guys automate this hurdle?

Re: Why do I need to install Access engine?

Hi Mothafar,

I assume you mean similar to what is covered in this video:

Loading MS Access and other ODBC Data (video)

Basically, as you have seen, we don't have a native connector for MS ACCESS and it requires the use of the driver and configurable ODBC DSN. I will attempt to get an answer for you as to why we don't, but I cannot promise I will get the the information right away.

Re: Why do I need to install Access engine?

Hello Mothafar,

I found out the reason:

"Simple answer is because we don't have the distribution rights to that driver. We are however renegotiating our drivers in the near future."

Hope this helps,

‌Thank you for the quick response.

Of course I watched the video and tried all possible configurations. Nothing worked so far.

Thank you anyway.
