I think I need help from someone who has succeeded in getting ODBC working for the purpose of using Mac Excel to query Mac Excel files - that is ALL I want to do.
This is a matter that neither Microsoft or Apple provide a solution for and as such two third parties have stepped in, but I get nowhere with either despite everyone's best intentions.

My previous thread is here:

That thread provides screen shots and explains everything I have tried, with game assistance from an answerer, but we did not succeed.

As such this question is quite possibly my last resort.
I have spent a great deal of time not solving this issue.

Any help will be gratefully received.
