Hi everyone, I'm new to Java and this forum. I need help in connecting my applet to an MS Access database. Both the applet and database are located with my web host (Interland.com). The following is the error message that I get: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified. Connection Error I think I have a problem with not having the jdbc/odbc bridge driver in my website's root directory. If this is the case, can someone please tell me what files I need to upload into my web host?

sdev, I just recently registered as "Jeff Jadi"...previously "Mofius".. My problem is that I don't have access to the server that my website is running on.. So, I'm unable to install the drivers that my applet needs to access in order to gain database connectivity... Do you know of a way to get around this problem?... My site is currently hosted by Interland.com and they do not have Java JDK installed on their servers... Has anyone successfully used an applet to connect to a database on their website that is hosted by a third party? Thanks sdev, and thanks to those that thought about my question..
