I want to open a MS Access database (mdb). All I found in the help (deep down bay search) was I have to use an ADO connection. Nothing else is presented in the dialog. I mention there has to be a driver for which is not installed yet. How to get?

Your own 'answer' suggests you use Mac OSX, correct? That information could be relevant.

Thank you. The drivers I can chosse are: JDBC, Oracle JDBC, Mac OS X address book (which doesn't do in another case), Thunderbird/Icedove address book, table document, dBASE, Text, MySQL, ODBC, PostgreSQL.

I tried JDBC and ODBC and Oracle jDBC. In all cases I treid with path and Path+filename without success. If I leave the fields empty the connection test fails.

Sorry but without "karma" I cannot upload screen shots..
