I try to use this Tutorial from @Miguel Barrera


The Problem I have is when try to choose the dataconnection in VW, the options are not givin:



I create connections in the ODCB Manager tfor every Ecxel Driver who exist:

In windows there are multiple copies of odbcad32.exe so you need to find which one is visible to VW. I did a search on the windows folder and found 4 copies. The most relevant however, are located in the C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64 folder, which applies to 64 bit applications, and the other is in the C:\WINDOWS\System32 folder, which applies to 32 bit applications. If it does not appear in the VW dialog, then you need to configure the other odbcad32 administrator.


In my system, I found that the one in SysWOW64 works with VW.
