Got Problem with ODBC Connection on Window 7? Get Help

Odbc Server

ODBC (Open Database Connectivity). It is a medium for which database is being connected to external source. I was on a mission some months ago to create an application using Microsoft Access as my database. I was on window 7 and I discovered some drivers which was needed for the process were missing and I was like........... "huhhhhhh, where are all these drivers?" and after thorough research, I came about the solutions.
Why are the drivers needed? They are needed because they are used to interact with Microsoft Access,Microsoft Excel, and other ODBC sources that don't have OLEDB drivers. I also noticed the problem is common on window 7 64 bit.

Solutions to ODBC Connection on Windows 7

1. Since it is supported on 32 bit window 7, we will need to find the location of the 32 bit ODBC Administrator.
Goto your local disk ==> windows ==> SysWOW64 ==> odbcad32.exe
2. Right-Click and Open
3. After opening the ODBC 32, click on the User DSN tab and click on "add" and all the missing drivers will be displayed.
Since all the missing drivers have been found, I believed you won't like going back always to search for the missing drivers and so, I will be revealing how to create shortcut in the administrative tools.
Open your windows explorer, and navigate to the following location:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools
Make a copy of the Data Sources (ODBC)
Rename the copy to Data Sources (ODBC) - 32 Bit
Now go to the properties and change the Target and Start In and replace "system32" with "SysWOW64". And click OK.

That's all..Hope it helps............

Android: How to Download Youtube Videos

Right before now, YouTube videos were downloaded conveniently using the UCBrowser on Android devices but recently, the license placed on YouTube videos have restricted the browser download wizard to perform its wonders. Though, the YouTube had enabled the offline watching of videos but not all videos have this feature, the feature is placed on video according to its owner. This is definitely actually not the best as there are countless reasons why videos need to be downloaded.
