No suitable driver

I've ran this before and I know it works. It's been awhile since I done some Java (I work in VB at work, and only get to use Java in my free time). Can anyone point out what went wrong? Did I change something that I shouldn't have?
Here's my output:
Getting driver sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver . . . Success.
Getting connection d:\Java\Nomey\data\Nomey.mdb . . . Failed.
No suitable driver

Here's my code:

Thanks for your help with a novice.

Hi Matt,

try registering the driver atleast once before u attempt to get a connection before the class.forName()
DriverManager.registerDriver("your diver name");
i think this would help,

What is your URL?
The URL should be "jdbcdbc:<ODBC ALIAS>"
