I have trial version of MapPoint 2009 and created a Microsoft Link file (.udl) for SQL server 2005.
The UDL file Test Connection works fine. and when I import data to MAPPoint 2009, all the tables are shown properly. I can select a table but But when I select a view, I get teh following error:

"There was a problem opening: c:\myconnection.udl, ViewName"

Can some one please help me on this.

Please note that I have trial version of MapPoint 2009.

I have the same problem. It connects to my Dev database but when I change the connection to point ( in the UDL file) to any other environment.
It says problem opening UDL file

Can you please post if you have a solution?

Can MS helpdesk, they want to charge me for a solution? :(

I have a license for Map Point 2010
