Request failed when adding the DSN

Post by tammy » Mon 05 Jul 2021 14:52

Hi,

I was totally new to this, so please forgive me if i am asking a stupid question. I was trying to add a DSN but it always ended as "An error occurred when trying to add the DSN : Request failed". Could someone tell me where the problem may come from?

Any help is appreciated.

Best regards,
Yujing

Hi Yujing,
Please clarify for which database you are trying to set-up DSN and which exact properties you use?
Also let us know in which moment the error message appears.
Thanks,
Evgeniy

Hi Evgeniy,

I was trying to connect to the WRDS database. Today I tried again with the exact same properties and it was tested successfully this time...

But I got another problem here. After the message "test successfully" jumped out, my iODBC Administrator quitted unexpectedly (i am using macOS). And when I try to import this ODBC data source to my stata, the stata also crashed... Do you have any idea what the problem could be?

Thank you so much for your help.

Best,
Yujing

Hi Yujing,
Please confirm which product you use to connect to WRDS database (name and the version)?
Thanks,
