    Unhappy Unanswered: ODBC Error 3184

    I'm using Visual FoxPro ODBC driver as a freestanding table (no special DSN name). When I try to open a table that's linked to the driver, I get the following error:

    Code:
    Run time error 3184
    
    Could not execute query; could not find linked table.
    
    [Microsoft][ODBC Visual FoxPro Driver] File 'My file name' does not exist (#173)
    I opened Visual FoxPro and opened the table directly with no problem. I browsed the table and closed it. I then tried opening the table again in Access with the same error as above.

    This is a new error. The file was fine until now, when I got a new computer and needed to download a new VFP driver. Maybe the driver's faulty?

    Please help.

    Thanks.

    Could be the driver...

    have you tried to refresh your odbc links? When does this error occur, during configuration or was it an existing linked table that no longer functions?
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    Hi, Teddy,

    It was working and crapped out. What do I do now?

    I would first try to refresh your linked tables via tools -> database utilities -> linked table manager. If that doesn't work, I would rule out (or confirm) an issue with the driver itself by attempting to create a new access database from scratch and establish a linked table to your target.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    Is there an updated driver? My driver dates back to 1999.
