Question: I am receiving the error "Error 11, Invalid File Name." I am at a client machine trying to create a DSN and connect to the datasource located on the server. When I click on the Get DSN List, I see my datasource. When selecting my data source and click on the test button, the error occurs. When I created my System DSN on the server, it asked where the dictionary location is. I was browsed out to a mapped drive where the ddf's were located.

Answer: To solve this error, I created a new System DSN on the server and when it specified the dictionary location I pathed out to Network Neighborhood , then clicked on the machine and pathed to the dd'fs.
