.. hello helpful people ..

.. I was trying to install MS Access 97 ... and got an error .. (windows system error 1157)

.. it says:

-- the setup routines for Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb) ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 1157.
.. (could not load the setup or translator library).


.. I've read that installing DATAACC.EXE helps .. but I don't have the original MS Office 97 CD here at work. (I have an update version that installs Access only).



.. during the installation (right at the end) .. it's says:

-- The config. of the ODBC Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb) driver failed.


* running windows 98 .. on a crap system .. but I need MS Access .. any help would be GREATLY appreciated

.. thanks.

Go to Microsoft's web site and dl the latest version of MDAC...should take care of the ODBC driver problem.
