Thanks George. When you say, " is K:\ ... a valid path... yes this is the drive where I had shifted the contact wolf folder from C: after installing its upgrade. It contains the latest CWdb240.mdb file dated 25 Feb 2014 in a folder called 'contact wolf data base'.
For ODBC connections, I do reach till Data Sources (ODBC)..but there I get lost and stop; which tab to touch, where to go...probably, that is the help I need.
I should have remembered that in my first mail...Yes 'Addresses folder' was deleted by me and now the path is: K:contact wolf professional\contact wolf database\CWdb 240.mdb But the installation is on drive C:
