I'm trying to use mySQL Community Edition 5.0.18 with mySQL Connector/ODBC 3.51.12. Configuring SYSTEM DSN, connection is O.K. (tested).
But when I try to link the database tables with Access2003, I get the reply
"[MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]User cancelled."

How to repeat:
Try to link mySQL 5.0.18 to mySQL Connector/ODBC 3.51.12

I was unable to repeat this issue. Can you show the create table definition
which are you trying to link?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for the feedback. I was able to repeat with your complementary

1- When creating the system DSN the user and password are empty.
2- When pop up the Connector setup screen inside Access and after
    to fill the user and password text boxes + ok, the message error reported
    happens and the table can't be linked.

I posted the same probñem before finding this bug report.
The connector with the user and password stored, works fine. If you erase them, when trying to link or open a linked table, the connector dialog appears, with both fields empty, of course. You may fill them but it doesn't work. Is like the connector don't pass the input values, and the connection is made with empty values and fails. I tried blanking only one of both fields at a time, with same results.
Both fields must be optional so user have to type them when trying to access, otherwise everyone may access using stored values.

Same as bug 16640? If you store the user/password values and go to Advanced/Flags 2, then check "Don't Prompt Upon Connect" then the connection works.

The prerelease of v3.51.13 solved the problem.

Go to bug #15118 (same as this) for details.

Fixed in source repository. MyODBC 3.51.13 will have this bug fixed
