Hi,

I'm testing CR2020. All our 2013 reports with Access/Excel (DAO) connections can not be open because it doesn't recognize the DAO connection (doesn't exist in 2020).

I can't get to database set datasource because of it.

How do I solve this ?

Thanks

Have you tried creating an ODBC connection for the Access DB?  It what we have to do for newer Access formats (2007+).  I know that CR 2020 is supposed to accept 64-bit ODBC connections now.

Can 2020 work with a 32bit ODBC source ?

CR 2013 can't access 64bit

I do not believe 32 bit ODBC's are supported in 2020.  It is something I have thinking about for a while since we have a number of reports using ODBC's.  Including a few Access data sources.  But recently we had a co-worker take a class for Information Design Tool (for universes) and they had to created 32-bit and 64-bit ODBC's for the Access data source and it worked just fine.

Of course it can be annoying to switch over to another data source in a report when all the tables and fields are named the same.
