from the dev-ML:
ODBC and GRASS for Windows Have posted some weeks ago on a problem with the ODBC driver in the user list but got no answer until now. I am working on a master thesis and would like to use GRASS as the core of a solution with FOSGIS, but there seem to be problems with the ODBC driver in GRASS for Windows. Beeing not a programmer I am not really sure about this and would like to consult the developers of GRASS for a suggestion how to proceed. Please correct me, if my point of view should be wrong ! My former post in the user list is this http://osgeo-org.1560.n6.nabble.com/ODBC-driver-in-GRASS-td4558182.html Is there any chance to solve the problem with reading ODBC data bases (particularly MS Access) in the near future? Havn't opened a ticket yet. Thanks a lot for any feedback, regards, Christine
attached a simple test access database (testinput.mdb - zipped) - simple x,y-point-data - for the nc-sample dataset.
the v.in.db-wxgui freezes if database (i.e. C:\wd\access\testinput.mdb) is entered in the gui
in the wxgui-commandline
v.in.db driver=odbc database="C:\wd\access\testinput.mdb" table=grassinput key=ID x=xcoor y=ycoor output=mdbvector
a error message pops up that odbc.exe isn't working.
