Example Scripts

  ; Create MS Access DSN & Data Base
  nsODBC::AddSysDSN "Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)" "DSN=SERVER_${PRJ_NAME}_DB"
"DBQ=$INSTDIR\${PRJ_NAME}.mdb"
 
  ; Remove DSN
  nsODBC::RemoveSysDSN "Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)" "DSN=SERVER_${PRJ_NAME}_DB"

It is also possible to create, compact, and repair Microsoft Access mdb files with this plugin. A link below explains the syntax for compacting and repairing the database. Notice: Be sure to put the path to the database file in escaped quotes as the command will fail if there are spaces in the file name otherwise.

  ; Create a JetSQL (mdb) file.
  nsODBC::AddDSN "Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)" "CREATE_DB=$\"$INSTDIR\foo.mdb$\" General"
