    ODBC with remote path to server

    Hi Guys,



    I am on virtual machine with windows and trying to connect to FE from user account:

    Code:
     Sub Test()
    
    
        Dim conn
    
    
            Set conn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
            
            glbConnString = "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)};Dbq=\\192.168.170.33\C:\Access FE\Model Excel-Database.accdb;"
            
            conn.Open glbConnString
    
    
    End Sub
    Without IP this is working fine.
    But i want to connect to this VM outside from it using ODBC connection.
    How to do it properly?

    I think that UNC path should work also something like
    \\localhost\C:\Access FE\Model Excel-Database.accdb; but it doesnt.

    And here i am seeing that it is possible to do it:

    Please help,
    Best,

    Ok when i get full UNC path this is working:

    Code:
    \\devwin2012-197-\Access FE\Model Excel-Database.accdb
    and i think this should work also using IP address.
    Why this is not working?

    Best,
    Jacek

    I've never tried using IP address and a VM to connect but for UNC paths you omit the : after the drive letter C
