Hi :)
I am not sure how that link is supposed to help Donald with his question?  Access uses something 
called Jet and something called MDAC?  How can Donald find out which version of Jet is being used 
in their Access?  Would finding out even be relevant to Donald's question, or would it only help 
with that unhelpful page?

Hi Tom

The page lists the downloads for the data drivers needed to connect to
an Access database - from anything other then Access, Base included, on
a Windows OS.

They don't ship with Windows and therefore the user needs to go get

Once installed the questioner should be able to connect following the
instructions in the help file.

Running LibreOffice 3.4.5 on Windows 7 Home Premium laptop.
Downloaded LO last week and all is fine so far with Write and Calc. But when I try to connect 
to an Access DB. I get an 'unable to connect, maybe necessary data provider is not installed'. 
What data provider would I need and where can I download it? TIA
