Can't connect to .mdb file

I'm trying to connect to a .mdb file and I get a data link error saying "test connection failed because of an error in the initializing provider. Unrecognized database format."

The steps I'm doing are: Edit Script > Connect to an OLE DB with "force 32 bit" checked off > Microsoft Jet 4.0 OLE DB Provider

I've also tried opening the file in MS Access and I get a similar prompt saying "unrecognized database format."

Anyone know how I can connect to the file? Thanks!

Re: Can't connect to .mdb file


make sure you have installed the OLEDB driver for Access database.
