How to get data from Universe?

I used Design Studio 1.3, log on the server and add a new data source. When I selected the Universe I published on the server, Edit the Query, then I click the "Refresh" button on the "Edit Query Specification" dialog window, it showed me :

[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified

I can Execute the query in Rich Client.

The universe is based on Microsoft Access 2010. I saved the .accdb file on my local drive ( not on the server ).

Should I copy my .accdb file to the server?

Thank you very much!

    Hi Chunfeng,

    When you access a Universe via the BI platform you need to ensure that the BI platform can access the data source. If this runs locally on your client this might not be the case. Are you working in local mode when using the Webi Rich client? If that's the case the client uses the local defined connection.

    With kind regards,
