Find odbcad32.exe at C:\Windows\SysWOW64, and double click it. You will find the 32bit drivers listed now.

There is a problem....  the old sytle OleDB  (Jet) drivers for Microsoft Access (and Excel) don't exist for any 64-bit version of Windows.   Recall that ODBC is really just the "front end", and still requires a "back end" driver....  so, having a 64-bit ODBC driver only get's you half way.

Just recently, Microsoft has released a replacement for the OleDB/Jet drivers called "Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010" that does work in the 64-bit world.  However, they are kinda picky to install... for example, the install will fail if you have any 32-bit Office 2010 products installed (to include free PowerPoint 2010 viewer)
