Azure SQL connection through Excel 2010 using ODBC

I can't get an ODBC connection to work for a non-dbo user when trying to establish a connection to an Azure SQL DB.  It works fine for a dbo user.  It appears to have something to do with the default DB but the ODBC generator in windows 7 wont allow me to change the default db.  I know the non-dbo user has valid SQL credentials because I can connect to the remote Azure server/DB through Navicat as that user.  Any suggestions are welcome.

Try and make sure that your non-dbo user is essentially equivalent to dbo user i.e. both users should have same roles and privileges. To do this be logged in as dbo and then grant all to non-dbo user. Change or set the default database to whatever you want at SQL Server level itself & then try in ODBC.
