Yes, I'm using Access 97 and 2003 as well as Excel 97 via the latest
ODBC driver. It all works well. One thing to note when linking the
tables in Access is that you have to mark the "Save Password" tick box
in the linking dialogue. This avoids Firebird thinking you are
attempting unauthorized access to the DB. Use the version 2.0 Beta.

Hope this helps,
