I'm trying to link a table that exists externally.  I tried to setup ODBC connection, and I get the following error:
ODBC--call failed.
[Sybase][ODBC Driver][Adaptive Server Enterprise]Stored procedure 'sp_odbc_tables' not found.  Specify owner.objectname or use sp_help to check whether the object exists (sp_help may produce lots of output).

I have no problem connecting and fetching queries using ADODB connection.  But I have found that doing it this way takes too long to fetch the query, and saving the values into the table in the database.  Any suggestions on how I can link the table?

The connection string that i use to connect using the ADODB connection is:

"Provider=ASEOLEDB;Data Source=;Initial Catalog=assumptions;User ID=hello;Password=hello;"
