heterogeneous query - Sybase and Oracle fails


#1

Hi,

I am trying to create a query using Sybase and Oracle tables; however the query fails.

In the documentation it says that for heterogeneous query to work, MS Access should be uninstalled . I cannot uninstall MSAccess; is there a way for query to work without un-installing MS Access?

Regards,
Roy

Hi Roy,

I think you misread the help. It states that you should NOT uninstall MS Access if you need to create a heterogeneous query. I’m not certain why a Sybase and Oracle query would fail.

Can you post the SQL and the error?

I have tried to use different drivers but doesn’t work.

Thanks,

Correct. I misread the documentation.

Here’s the error
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] ODBC–call failed.

The Query I am trying to execute
