Subj:   Re: SQL Assistant error: unable to open history
From:   Dempsey, Mike

It sounds like SQL Assistant is unable to create the history database.

Is this a new install on a system that does not have a previous History database installed? (You could copy one from someone else and simply empty it.)

Most likely there is some conflict between the JET dlls. (These are the dlls underlying MS Access. Do you have Access 2007 installed - Access 2007 no longer uses JET so maybe it uninstalled the dlls when it was installed.)

Another posibility is that the 'Directory' setting (in Options) is pointing to a read only directory, or to a non existant directory ... although this should give you a different error message.

Try executing the application 'verify.exe' in the SQL Assistant install directory. This creates a report that might indicate that a file is missing or of an incorrect version.
