Hi everybody,
I'm trying to convert CSV to XES via ODBC connection as I've read here. But I need some details about that schema.

So I created System Data Source (at CP > Administrative Tools) with a directory where my csv file is located. 

Then I specify that source name at XESame connection details and thats it? Seems not since it doesn't work) I did not find much explanation about parameters at the thesis work, so please help. Do I leave Driver field as it is by default? What else I didn't do? 

Thank you in advance!


  • Hi Rina,

    Welcome to the forum :)

    Have you found the additional information available at the website?
    The main XESame page is here:
    But maybe helps you locate the problem. My guess would be the 32/64 bit issue discussed there.

    Hope this gets you further but if you need further help, or have other questions, then please let us know!

  • Thank you for the reply!

    I tried with examples and I have the same error "URL could not be found". Names are exactly the same as I copied it from URL field. 

    I created 32-bit source, which is also displayed at 64-bit sources, but at 64 I cannot create one since there is no such driver. 

    Anything else I can try? 

  • Hi Rina,

    it helped me to install the Microsoft Access Runtimes to get the ODBC connection working:
