When I create a new bibliography data source, and then click on its 'Tables' to put in new entires, I get this error:

--
The connection to the datasource "New Biblio" could not be stablished. [Microsoft][OBDC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified.
--

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Looks lie you didn't register the database properly. First,press F4 while being in write and open the datasource panle. right click in the left panel and go "Administrate Datasources" choose to register a new one (look at the help on how to do this), Then choose the datasource and go to a table inside the datasource and the data shoud appear in the right panel. Then go to the bibliography module (Tools > Bibliography) and choose to change the database that is used for your references.
