the dsn exists and i have selected a db which has the table clients_online and other fields such as ip and mac exist

Are you sure it is a system dsn and not a user dsn? You must you the system tab in ODBC in the Administrative Tools to set up a system dsn.

I hear that the pblm is solved.
To others:
Sometimes if the MS-Access file is ".accdb" it wont work!
Pls ensure that it is ".mdb".
