Chapter 19. Using External Data > Using the Jet OLEDB:Link Provider String

Using the Jet OLEDB:Link Provider String

You use the Jet OLEDB:Link Provider string when linking to external tables. It includes the source database type, user ID, and password. You must use a semicolon to separate each part of the connection string.

Each source database type has a valid name. This is the name that must be used when accessing that type of data. These database types are found in the Windows registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Jet\4.0\ISAM Formats. You must accurately specify the source database type, or you will be unable to access the external data.
