ODBC Connectivity

I am running Server 2008.  On this server I have two MS Access databases.  On these data bases are several macros that connect to a SQL Server database on another server.  My problem is that I have to give the db users domain admin rights to get the macros to run correctly.  For security reasons I do not want them to have domain admin rights.  Is there another type of user on Server 2008 which would allow the ODBC connectivity to take place without allowing to much user rights?
