You only THINK you need to have your RPG program talk to a MS Access data base. What you really need to do is to move the MS Access data base onto your mainframe, and then have MS Access access it remotely. Sticking with the data base on MS Access is asking for trouble, including very slow performance, and even the occasional lost record.

Microsoft is the vendor for Access. Therefore, Microsoft is the supplier of all ODBC drivers for Access or the supplier of published protocols to allow you to code your own. Contact Microsoft and ask them how to obtain the ODBC driver. (Hint: Expect laughter in reply. You didn’t really think Microsoft would supply drivers for other competitive platforms for Access, did you?)
