[R] RODBC connection failed

ch <- odbcConnect("dBase Files","","")

Perhaps you should avoid the space
in your dsn name !?


I am trying to restart on R after 2 months stop. Start with previously
functioning procedure:
"ch<-odbcConnect("dBase Files")"
"Warning message:
ODBC connection failed in: odbcConnect("dBase Files") "
I have tried unsuccessfully different working directories.
The only change I see is that I am working with a new login account on
the same machine. Microsoft ODBC is still here in c:\WINNT\system32.
What is wrong?
