When adding an SQL server with the Microsoft ODBC Setup program, you may receive the following incorrect message when the server name is actually correct:

The server <your server name> was not found on the network. Are you sure you want to use it?


The cause of this problem has not yet been determined. We are researching it.


Although Visual Basic Data Access Setup generates this incorrect message, Visual Basic still adds the correct information to the ODBC.INI file and the ODBC driver is set up correctly.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This problem has been corrected in Visual Basic version 4.0.


Steps to Reproduce Problem

  1. Run the Data Access Setup program.
  2. Select SQL Server in the Install Drivers dialog box. Then click the OK button. If the ODBC drivers were installed previously, you will get a message box that asks if you want to replace your driver; choose Yes.
  3. Select the Add option in the Data Sources dialog box.
  4. Select SQL Server in the Add Data Source dialog box, and click the OK button.
  5. In the ODBC SQL Server Setup dialog box, type the name of the data source in the Data Source Name field and a valid SQL server name in the Server field.
  6. Click the OK button. At this point, Visual Basic may generate a message box with the following text

    The server <your server name> was not found on the network. Are you sure you want to use it?

  7. Click the Yes button, and the setup will continue as usual.
