My problem is that
I want to access data from MS-Access and from XLS files using the Acceess to ODBC module.(I don’t have the tool SAS/ACCESS to PC File Formats)
We have SAS installed on Itanium 64 bit.
The data is saved on other servers (in Office 2003 ).
Is there an ODBC driver for the 64bit machine that will allow us to connect to those sources?
Someone suggested we can use a system-dsn on a "WOW" 32bit odbc driver and we managed to do so
But how can we tell SAS to go there as DATASRC in the ODBC Libname definition And not to the ODBC 64 bit
I assume that you are using SAS on Windows.
I can't see that this should be different than using 32-bit windows. You will need a 64-bit ODBC driver (which you will get from Microsoft for Excel). And if your Excel-files is located in a path that can be reached from your server there should be no obstacles.
If you have all this, and if it does not work, I suggest that open a track on SAS support.
