yah   i know how to set up an ODBC...

when i try  i get server does not exist.... because ... i am quessing the driver i have available cannot talk to the sql 2012 server.

the driver options i have are

sql Native Client   version  2005.90.5000.00
and
sql server version 2000.85.1132..00

as well as a bunch of  other microsoft drivers (for foxpro, text, paradox oracle)

on my windows 7 box.. i have the options for
sql server ver 6.01.7601
sqlserver native client 10.0   ver 2009.100.2500.00
sqlserver native client 11.0 ver 2011.110.3000.00

i usually use the native client 11.0 to connect to sql 2012 from this box.

like i said... i think i need a driver for 2012 ON xp

does such a thing exist?
