Running Windows 8 on a 64bit laptop. Latest Birt Report Designer and Java 8. All updated to current date.


Is it possible to connect Birt to a MS-access database?

Regards.



PS. Done sofar:
Created ODBC TestDB with DSN:c:\birt\test.accdb
Downloaded multiple jars to
C:\eclipse\plugins\org.eclipse.birt.report.data.oda.jdbc_4.5.0.v201506092134\drivers\rt.jar .
New jdbc datasource.
Select sun.jdbc.odbc
jdbc:odbc:TestDB
Test Connection is OK but: after jdbc:odbc: i can type anything i want (or nothing). It is all 'Test succesfull).
New Dataset: I can select the datasource but i does not show any available items.

I found a 3rd Party MS Access JDBC Driver from a Google search. I downloaded and tried the free trial version. It worked fine but we opted not to purchase the full version and went a different route. If you don't find it, let me know and I'll see if I can track down the name of the product we tested.

Problem solved.

I end up with:
Driver Class: com.caigen.sql.access.AccessDriver ( v5.2)
Database URL: jdbc:access:/C:/BIRT/Test2.accdb

No there was NO ODBC needed.

Sorry, I was wondering if you can provide the file or a link to the library itself?

Thanks in advance.
