MySQL ODBC not returning all tables to MS Access

I have a mysql database that will not return a handful of tables to MS Access via ODBC. I have never encountered this before. I can see no difference between the tables that show and those that don't. As well, no new tables that I create show up. What could be going on here?

the first thing that comes to my mind is that the ms access is NOT connected to the same MySQL db than the one you are looking in ...

This phenomenon is sometimes a symptom of testing the wrong thing.  A similar symptom is "I changed the program but I get the same result" and we find that the changes went into "directory A" but the tests were made using "directory B."  I would look closely at connection and selection processes to be sure the newly created tables are in the correct data base.
