How to Connect Python to MS Access Database using pyodbc
What is the datasource that you are trying to connect to? Is your local machine running Windows?
I haven't been able to connect except on Windows machines. Interesting, thanks for letting us know! I have just made a simple script just to try and make a connection, but I still get the same error:. I am having the same issue.
I have a paid account and using Python 3. I can import pyodbc but even using your format above and even on a whitelisted site I still get the same error as above. I actually had to use pymssql to get it to work. Not sure why pyodbc does not work. Try the following:. From a bash console, run the following two commands adjusting the Python version from 3. Thanks for posting that! We should have updated this forum thread after talking to you I think it was over email?
You're right, pymssql is the only option that works right now -- we think the problem with pyodbc is caused by a missing system library an operating-system-level package that can't be installed using pipand we'll get that installed for the next system update. But in the meantime, your suggestion is definitely the best one. Hi everyone, we pushed out our new system changes today and installed the missing system library. So pyodbc should be working now! An update to that -- it does work, but there's some slightly fiddly setup that you need to do.
We've put a full guide to connecting to Microsoft SQL Serverwhich includes pyodbc, on the help pages. Toggle navigation. Using pyodbc with Sql Server. Hello, I am trying to use pyodbc with sql server. Works on my local machine.

Why do i get this error? Please help me to fix this? Error: 'IM', '[IM] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified' buran wrote May, PM: Please, post your code small runnable snippet that reproduce the error in code tags as well as full traceback you get in error tags.
See BBcode help for more info. Because you need to supply a data source name when using odbc. Other connectors use a file name sqlliteor an ip address to connect to Otherwise, how is the library supposed to know which database you're trying to connect to?

It is also officially deprecated. It is not included with Windows, but it is normally included as part of a Microsoft Office install.
It is also available as a free stand-alone "redistributable" installer for machines without Microsoft Office.
There are separate bit and bit versions of the "ACE" Access Database Engine and driversand normally one has either the bit version or the bit version installed.
It is possible to force both versions to exist on the same machine but it is not recommended as it can "break" Office installations.
Therefore, if you already have Microsoft Office it is highly recommended that you use a Python environment that matches the "bitness" of the Office install.
If you see an empty list then you are running bit Python and you need to install the bit version of the "ACE" driver. For each, you need to pass in the name of an access file that can be used.

I think it is something about permissions anaconda python not being able to read from certain folders. I tried this. This doesn't help as conda install pyodbc for installs unixODBC 2.
Were you able to repro this issue? By the way, I was not able to reproduce the error scenario using your steps I used a docker container for ubuntu Here's the pyodbc.
From the output it seems as if your file test. If the same test. Now, I made sure the two use the same test. In pyodbc. In pyodbc2. That's a mismatch. Here's the new trace. The output from ldd: linux-vdso. I followed the steps for new environment and got the same error. Could you please share the debug files generated using the commands:. In the pip case, pyodbc. In conda's case, pyodbc. Since you have libgcc 4. The official page also suggests that the minimum version of libgcc required for symbol v3.
Maybe if msodbcsql was provided as a conda package, this issue wouldn't have arose, as it would have most likely taken care of the libgcc dependency.
If we're looking for a solution here that does not involve creating an msodbcsql conda package what other options do we have available? It seems to me that documentation is the easiest, but also easiest for an end-user to miss. Another option is to provide a libgcc dependency on pyodbc that will pick up a minimum version that will work with msodbc but I don't like the sound of that since it will be imposed on everyone even if they are using an old msodbcsql or not using SQL Server at all.
Are there other options you can think of? Or does it really come back around to "create an msodbcsql conda package that can specify that libgcc dependency in the right way"?Python DB was designed to allow conformant modules to provide a consistent interface to different database products. This helps developers to write Python applications that are portable across databases.
This tutorial shows how to use pyodbc with an ODBC driver, which you can download from this site. Easysoft ODBC drivers have been tested with pyodbc 2. The pyodbc module requires Python 2. When testing on RedHat, we used Python 2. On Ubuntu, we used Python 2. On Debian, we used Python 2. For installation instructions, see the ODBC driver documentation.
At the prompt, type "help" to display a list of tables. To exit, press return in an empty prompt line. On Unix and Linux platforms, you need to download the pyodbc source distribution and build it against an ODBC driver manager. We recommend that you use the driver manager distributed with the driver because this is the version of unixODBC that we test the driver with.
Note To rebuild pyodbc, you may need to manually remove the build directory tree by using rm -r build rather than python setup. Note If you need to rebuild pyodbc, first remove the build directory tree by using rm -r build rather than python setup. When testing with pyodbc 2. As a consequence, running python setup. As the tests access and manipulate database tables, they provide another way to test pyodbc against your ODBC driver and database.
We therefore recommend that you run them. To do this:. The pyodbc. The test suite is most relevant to SQL Server therefore.
