Pervasive ODBC with excel

HI
I had an excel spreadsheet with datasource of Pervasive client interface ODBC configured. It was working perfectly. Yesterday i have changed the ODBC datasource name. and i get some error. How do i change the path for the Excle sheet for the new datasource name?

The error messages are here:
 "The microkeranl cannot find the specified file (Betrieve Error 12)"
"Invalid Connectiong string attribute"


Thanks for any help

Sounds like you moved your Pervasive data as well. Did you recreate the ODBC DSN to point to the correct location?  
As far as changing Excel, you'll probably have to go into Excel, then "Data" then "Import External Data" and then "Edit Query" tobring up MS Query and then change the DSN it's pointing to.

Yes, I did recreate all DSNs. as your advise, i tried to edit the query, gives me error:
"[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager]Data source name not found and no default driver specified".
Is there any tweak in registry or somewhere else to edit the previous odbc configuration for this excel file?
Where actually this information stored? I searched the Microsoft KB, but didnt find any helpful document

Thanks for any help

Looking at the XLS file for a sheet that has a query, there is a "DSN=" value.  I don't know how you would change it in Excel but it should be configurable.
