I've been trying and failing to set up an ODBC connection to the mySQL database that drives my e-commerce website. I've got a MacBook and am trying to setup the connection for use with OpenOffice.

I'm a bit confused as to which ODBC driver I need from the mySQL website, there are three listed for Mac OS X. I'm guessing it should be the X86 3.51.14 Tar package, but I don't know what to do with the files in it as there appears to be no install feature.

I managed to get one of the other drivers to install, but there is no wizard to setup a new connection - everything I've read says there should be. So I set it up manually and it all looks ok and is registered on the system as a data source.

However, when I use it in OpenOffice it comes up with the following error message:

"The connection to the data source could not be established"

"SQL Status: 00000
Error code: -1341126376

[iODBC][Driver Manager]dlopen(/usr/lib/libmyodbc3.dylib, 6): no suitable image found. Did find:
/usr/lib/libmyodbc3.dylib: mach-o, but wrong architecture
/usr/lib/libmyodbc3.dylib: mach-o, but wrong architecture"

I've only just started using Mac OS X, but never had any problems with this sort of thing under Windows.

Any help greatly appreciated.

QUOTE Thanks
