This could be included with the "Gracefully handle ODBC connection..." idea, which the Access team has planned to work on.
It's very important to get this fixed, otherwise many users will not acquire or upgrade to CTR Office versions.Frank Rotolo supported this idea ·
Thanks for calling out this issue Subhabrata.
We are investigating this issue.
@Mark Burns – this is a different issue that we are looking into as well. Please post as a separate suggestion so people can vote on it and we can address.
@Mark, I agree with you. FYI, I recently changed my email address in user voice settings and low_and_behold, I now have 20 more votes available! The votes I had cast under my previously registered email address didn't disappear.
Mark, the only temporary workaround is to unvote the least important ideas you voted on. As to the ODBC drivers, they're installed, but not visible outside of Office because they're inside the CTR virtualization container. I don't know if MS intentionally design it this way, and if so, why?, but its certainly a major problem!
