View as plain text  
I have never played with views in MySQL so I had a try and created a
view and was able to get to it OK in Access. I am using XP Pro, MySQL
5.1.9, Access 2003, MyODBC 3.51.11, MDAC 2.8

I have a critical problem that I hope there is a simple solution for.

I've just spent a couple days converting a very messy "hack" to populate
a
table using a much more elegant VIEW solution now.

Everything is going great, except now the whole point of this VIEW is so
that people using MS Access (or other ODBC) can use the VIEW.

It doesn't work!?!

I've followed all of this:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/msaccess-setup.html

I can import/link any other non-VIEW table.

I've given FULL permissions to my ODBC user in mysql.mysql.user (and
other
appropriate) places just in case.

Access pops up an error box that says "Could not execute query; could
not
find linked table"

I'm using these versions:

Windows XP
http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/3.51.html

root@daevid111:/lockdown# mysql --version
mysql  Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.15, for pc-linux-gnu (i686) using readline
4.3
