AS400 iseries ODBC VBA Excel add-in


I created a VBA Excel program to get data from our AS/400

It works on my pc but not my boss's. It says 'connection failed' He has Client Access installed.

What would he be missing?

It seems like from the connection string below that he would need Client Access Driver but isn't that automatically installed if he has Client Access.

Is there an easy way to do this so there isn't a complicated setup for each user?

I need you to troubleshoot and solve this problem

Here is the connection string I use.

'Create query to retrieve individual records..

Set qtDetail = [url removed, login to view]( _

Connection:="ODBC;DRIVER={Client Access ODBC Driver (32-bit)};UID=" & getUID & ";PWD=" & getPWD & ";SYSTEM=[url removed, login to view];DBQ=QGPL AXXDTA;DFTPKGLIB=QGPL;LANGUAGEID=ENU;PKG=QGPL/DEFAULT(IBM),2,0,1,0,512;TRANSLATE=1;SIGNON=1;", _

Destination:=[url removed, login to view]("A4"))

Any help much appreciated
