I am receiving the below error when attempting to run any queries via a linked server in SQL Server 2008 R2 using the Visual Fox Prox OLE DB Provider v188.8.131.5204.
I am attempting this as I need to import data from VFP .dbf files into a SQL database.
Msg 7314, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 The OLE DB provider "VFPOLEDB" for linked server "vfp" does not contain the table "pat". The table either does not exist or the current user does not have permissions on that table.
select * from vfp...pat
- I have ensured that there are 'Full Control' AD permissions to the free table directory for the service account that SQL Server is running and the user account that is logged into SSMS on the server.
- The server OS is Windows Server 2003 SP2 x86.
TSQL for linked server creation is below:
EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedserver @server = N'VFP', @srvproduct=N'Visual FoxPro', @provider=N'VFPOLEDB', @datasrc=N'"C:\VFP"', @provstr=N'VFPOLEDB.1' EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedsrvlogin @rmtsrvname=N'VFP',@useself=N'False',@locallogin=NULL,@rmtuser=NULL,@rmtpassword=NULL
I've also used an alternate @provstr value of
Provider =vfpoledb; Data Source =C:\VFP\; Collating Sequence =general;
So my question is have I missed anything that I need to configure? Can anyone provide a few pointers as to what I should check to resolve this problem?
Thanks in advance
I should mention that "allow inprocess" is configured for the VFPOLEDB provider and queries fail when using either 4 part names or OPENQUERY().
