 MDAC 2.1 and Access 97(-) Incompatable

Thought I'd share this bit of info for anyone that might have expienced the
same problem.  After upgrading to MDAC 2.1. .2.4202.3 (GA) all my ASP apps
accessing Access 97 db's broke.  In the KB Q240377
( http://www.*-*-*.com/ ) I found out
that some genius decided that the new ODBC dll's installed would not work
with versions of Access prior to 2000.  The solution is to either upgrade
the db's to Access 2000 or re-install the older dll's.

Good Luck,

Bonjour,

Are you sure that all  your apps are out ? It's quite frightening !!
They (MS) said under certain circumstances :[

Have you read Q165535 : Random Errors When Performing IDC or ASP Queries to
an Access Database
and tried its workaround ?
