You have installed an incomplete fileset for ODBC.  Your dependency files for ODBC32.DLL are probably out of date.  Try downloading and installing the latest version of ODBC from MS.

Raghavendra Tantri the solution is not far away it is just
a few minutes work
copy the file odbc32.dll(the missing file) to the windows system directory ("c:\windows\system" or "c:\winnt\system32\" in the case win95  and winnt respectivlye) .Any other directory can be used but it is good practise to have dll's  in the system directory
now you have to register the dll.Hope you would know it but still to give a complete answer here it is
go to windows start menu
click run and type the following
"c:\windows\regsvr32.exe" "c:\windows\system\odbc32.dll"
in case of winnt it may be
"c:\winnt\system32\regsvr32.exe" "c:\winnt\system32\odbc32.dll"

the path in the firts section of quotes says the path where the regsvr32.exe exists and the path in the next seciton says where the dll you want to register exists
In case you have any problems keep me informed
