While creating ODBC connection to MDB we may get the following error:
  Error: Unable to connect to the data source using the defined settings. Server has returned the following error:ODBCError HY000: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Could not find file '(unknown)'.

We have to check the following if we are getting the error:
  1.  Make sure that you set correct path to database in ODBC connection settings in Plesk Control panel.
  2.  Database name is correct and does not contain space sign.
  3.  If database requires login and password, they should be correct as well.
