I have files created in LO, as well as mdb files created in Access on my PC. I don't have Access installed. Never had a problem working on the files before, but now I get an error saying that the connection to the data source "<database name="">" could not be established. "The connection could not be created. May be the necessary data provider is not installed." In the error details pane, it shows an error of "SQL Status: HY000, with the same description as above. I'm guessing someone else has experienced this, but my searches have yielded nothing but confusing info. Anybody out there know how to resolve this? Thanks!

Try reinstalling LO or Java.

I reinstalled LO (no help), but I stopped running Java on my PC a long time ago.

I uninstalled LO 64-bit, and installed 32-bit. I can now see .odb files, but it tries to open .mdb files in Writer. I also installed Java, to see if that might help. It didn't.
