ODBC drivers in Windows x64 Professional Edition

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?U2lkZQ==?=, Feb 9, 2007.

  1. Is there currently a way to make an ODBC connection from a 64-bit application
    to Access and Excel files? My understanding is that a 64 bit ODBC driver is
    required when creating 64 bit applications.

    Is there an alternative to ODBC to connect a 64 bit application to Access
    and Excel?

    - I specifically want to target x64 machines so setting target machine to
    x86 in my compiler options (in order to use the 32bit ODBC driver
    equivalents) is not an option.
    - I specifically do not want to go through SQL Server.

    You figure there would be a way considering Windows and Office are the two
    mainstays of Microsoft.

    Is ODBC the Answer?

    Which data access application programming interface (API) should I
    use?
