Can anybody explain in plain English how I resolve the above, there is a lot of information on the net but I cannot get my ODBC working.

I have a MySQL database on a server, I downloaded the correct ODBC as per other PCs that are working on this configuration. I have a 64 bit PC with Windows 7 Professional and Office 2010 (32 bit) installed.

I installed the ODBC Connector, my database is displayed and the "Test connection" is coming back successful.

When I try and link the tables I get the message "the specified dsn contains an architecture mismatch between the driver and application"

Thanks in advance

1. From the control panel, using the ODBC Data Manager Shortcut, delete the DSN if it exists.

2. Using the 32 bit version of the ODBC admin applet:

 C:\Windows\SystemWOW64\ODBCad32.exe

 Delete the DSN if it exists.

3. Using the same program as #2, re-create the DSN.

 Make sure it's a system DSN and that you are selecting a 32 bit driver for the datasource.

Jim.
