I have successfully set up an ODBC connection to a monetdb server and can link to it from Access. I have tried to create a linked server and use openrowset in sqlserver unsuccessfully.

This is what I have been working with:

Select * from openrowset('MSDASQL',
'DRIVER={MonetDB ODBC Driver};SERVER=MonetDB;uid=monetdb;pwd=monetdb',

MonetDB is the name of the server and DSN.
It is installed on the localhost as is sql

I am testing it on SQL 2005 Express 32-bit on my laptop

Thank you

I think you have to specify port 50000 in the connectionstring, unless you have the SQL Browser service running.
