I attempted a different configuration. I defined an ODBC connection to an Access database test.accdb. and called it test_db. In the Matlab command window, I performed the following:
conn = database('test_db','','');
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application Please verify that login information and database url are valid.
I researched the error message in Matlab help and found the following: "You tried to open a 32-bit application when running MATLAB® in 64-bit mode." and recommended resolution "Restart MATLAB to run in 32-bit mode using the command matlab –win32." However, when I run that command, Matlab always appears to run in 64-bit mode and I continue to get the same error message. I cannot find any other information on running in 32-bit mode. BR Is there another way to force running in 32-bit mode so that I can connect to the 32-bit Access db? Is there another work around? I am running this on a machine that is fairly locked down so I will have to go through a help desk to make changes to the installation.
