If you’re using Microsoft Office 2001 — the last major Mac version of the productivity software package made before Office v.X — and you have a need to access data from a Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle database, or certain other kinds of databases, you may be interested in a new
Data Access Update
the company has released.
The Office 2001 Data Access Update installs Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) drivers and a control panel device on the target computer, which will enable the system to access data from sources including:
Microsoft SQL Server
Microsoft Visual FoxPro
America Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) text files
The 1.9MB update requires Microsoft 2001 for Mac, Excel 2001 or Word 2001 Standalone Version to be installed on a Mac running Mac OS 8.6 – 9.x.
