Hi;

I am trying to connect my MS Access database, but it gives me the following error:

Logon Failed
Details: DAO Error Code 0xbd9
Source DAO Workspace
Description: You do not have necessary permissions to use ..(database path)... object. Have your suystem administrator or the person who created this object establish the appropriate permissions for you.

I am new to Crystal Reports, and I want to make some reports for my MS Access database using Crystal Reports.

Your HELP is requested.

Regards
Muaz

I have not seen this issue before. A few questions first. 1. What version of Crystal Reports? 2. What version of Access? 3. What type of connection are you using (Access/Excel (DAO), ODBC (RDO), OLE DB (ADO), etc.). 4. Is there a password and/or security on the Access DB (workgroups?)?

Not sure. We have used the same basic configuration in the past and it has worked just fine. Just as a long shot, can you create an ODBC connection using the the Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb). Maybe at least you might get a different error message that will lead to what the issue is. It almost sounds like a folder rights issue, but if you can open the DB without an issue then you should be fine.

FYI: Just as a reminder, that version of CR will not work with an Access 2007+ version (.accdb)
