Connecting to a MS Access DB

Hi,

How can I can connect to a MS Access database in order to reverse engineer it?

Thanks

Hi Yeti,

Thanks for your post. We are sorry that we do not support MS Access database.

There’s no way to use a custom jdbc connection?

Hi Yeti,

Thanks for replying. Please try the Instant Reverse for JDBC instead of Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) feature. More details about Instant Reverse for JDBC can be found from:

Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any further question.

Thanks,

In order to connect to my access db, I’m using an ODBC bridge, but Vp keeps saying it doens’t find the driver class.
I didn’t provide any jar driver for I’m using ODBC…

Hi Yeti,

Thanks for replying. Our engineers tested that leaving JDBC Driver blank can reverse the JDBC ODBC (you can refer to attached image). Could you please capture a screenshot of your configuration and send me the vp.log file (Inside VPSuite/bin folder) to take a look? Thanks in advance!

Hi,

That’s ok.

I found a jdbc driver for access and set it up;)

Hi Yeti,

That’s good. Please feel free to ask if there is anything I can help.
