Hi

Go to script editor and select OLEDB drivers and select microsoft jet oledb 4.0 drivers.

If you don't find then I would suggest you to download the Acess  database engine from the below link.

Hope it helped.

Make a ODBC connection string >> select ms access >> select data source and location of the MS-Access file

Then you get connection string

You can connect directly to the database.

You will need select the  32-bit connection option so your connection string shows as CONNECT32.

Hi,

For any database you have to generate connection string( Interface between Database and QV). To establish the connection you have to generate DSN. In case of MS acces files you can fetch directly. For DSN creation..

Go to Control Panel--> Administrative Tools--> ODBC----> Select your DataBase--->

Then after you have to give some credentials like IP Address, Username And Password...

It will Establish connection string .... U can fetch from Select option from Edit Script.

You can establish MS-Access Database connection string in the same manner.

Regards,

Khadeer

Hi Akash

The best way to connect to MS Access and other RDBMS data base is using the OLE DB

When You open the Qlikview or New QlikView

Press Ctrl + E or Click on File | Edit Script

Select OLEDB from Dropdown under the data base section

Click on Connect

Select The Driver for MS Access under the provider Tab

Click next to select the path where the Access database was stored.

Test the Connection and click on OK
