    I am having problems linking TA5 to MS Access.

    In TA V5 I set up an 'Update Database' action configured to use ODBC and confirmed it is working:

    When I go back and re-test the ODBC link despite having mad no changes since the previous test I get:

        Hi Dave,

        We've updated the GUI to reflect how MS Access is connected to. If you update to the latest version of ThinkAutomation 5 then you will notice the Connect to MS Access dialogue is now tailored to how it's intended to be used.

        If you have not done so already please ensure you also install the Access Engine 32bit that is linked to within the dialog box.

        Kind regards,
