Welcome to JavaRanch, Chandan.

Please use real words and real sentences. It is easier for people that want to help you if they don't have to replace 2 by to, 4 by for, or if they have to find where one sentence stops and the next one starts.

i have found way for declaring data source name for MS access its like this:
* go to ms-access and make a table called say "student_base" and give it a
file name student_base.mdb
* 1. Go to Control Panel
2. Click on Administrative Tools(windows 2000/xp), Click on
3. click on ODBC
4. Then , you will see a ODBC dialog box. Click on UserDSn
5. Click on Add Button
6. Select Microsoft Access Driver(*.mdb) driver and click on finish
7. Give a Data Source Name : student_base
8. Then Click on Select
9. Browse on the database name you have created and click
it:student_base.mdb is a database file where all data
will be stored
10. Click on OK.
Once the DSN is created
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
