I have 2 machines and 2 users for MS SQL server 2008 R2
Both machines belong to the same domain network.

machine A is a windows 7 pro pc trying to setup an odbc connection to machine B ( sql server)running
machine B windows 2008 r2 server running sql server

I am setting up an odbc on machine a to access machine b
       If i setup the connection as "sa" the connection works fine.
       If i setup the connection as "myuser" i cant connect to the server getting error

As a suggestion i tried adding "sysadmin" role to "myuser" and i am able to connect ok, but i dont think this is the right way to do it. Looking to see what actually needs to be setup for myuser to be able to connect not as a sysadmin.

Did you grant "myuser" access to the target database in addition to creating its login?

I should have put that in already, thanks
Connection failed:
SQLState: '28000'
SQL Server Error: 18456
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Login failed for user 'myuser'.

I am able to login to enterprise manager with the myuser id however and see my databases.

Enterprise Manager?
Shouldn't be Management Studio?
Enterprise Manager is from SQL Server 2000 and can't connect to superior versions of SQL Server.

The error appears when you create the DSN in ODBC?
And which permissions has that user in the SQL Server instance?

Do you mean sql server permissions or windows permissions?
server roles -> public
user mapping -> db_datareader and public
status grant and enabled
no securables
