Hi

I want to create a data connection from excel to Postgres by using ODBC.  I'm using ODBC for my application to connect to postgres and the ODBC is working fine, but thru excel the following error occur - Operation cannot be executed because an error occurred during connection to the driver, error also attached.

I'm using Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 and Postgres 8.2.4.1, with ODBC driver version 7.03.01.00 from Insight Distribution Systems .  If somebody can please help me for just connecting to postgres from excel.

Thanks

Found the problem, use the x64 postgres driver and then the connection works.
