I have an old excel report application which still works in windows XP and Excel 2003. But after I upgraded my pc to windows 7 64 bit and Office 2007, the report throws error;

"There was a problem connecting to the database. Please try running the report again. If the problem persists, contact your system administrator. Login failed for user 'reporter'" I checked  ODBC in 64bit, nothing there. In 32bit ODBC, I don't see any database connection in the working pc(windows xp and office 2003) for this report. So, I'm not sure this uses ODBC, either. The server is SQL 2000 Express

I'm not good at excel, but I guess something has to do the OS and office upgrade to 64bit...

The problem you have is that there is no 64-bit JET driver.

So what's the work around to run the 32bit excel report on 64 bit machine?
Is there 32bit jet driver I can install on the machine? i was reading online, but got confused..

Never mind I misunderstood, I see now that you are connecting to a SQL Server 2000 which cannot be 64-bit, so if you have installed the 32-bit ODBC driver and it is not making any difference I have no idea what it could be.
