    Sql Server 2000 Connection Issues

    Jay Wehler

      I have an old SQL Server 2000 database that I am trying to connect to.  I keep getting the following error:

      [Simba][SqlServerODBC] (15) Failed to connect to the SQL Server instance: [HY000]: Cannot connect to SQL Server instance. This driver supports SQL Server 2005 and newer only.

       

      I downloaded and installed the SimbaSql drivers from the Tableau sight but still won't connect.  Am I just out of luck trying to connect to SQL Server 2000 with Tableau?

       

      Has anyone else experienced this?

       

      Thanks in advance!
