My SQL DB is not available for selection, SQL Migration Assistant For Access

Last Modified: 2015-12-09
I want to migrate an Access table to my SQLDatabase 'JTSConverson' using SQL Server Migration Assistand For Access 32-bit.

I am going thru the steps with the Wizard.  I have selected the Access Table I want to bring over and now need to connect to the SQL database where I want to move the table.  Unfortunately my DB is not one of the selections in the drop down menu on the SQL Connect Dialog box shown in the attached word document.SqlConnectDialog.docx

I see my database when I am in Sql Server Management Studio.  I even have a 'User DSN' set up for it.

How do I make it appear as on option to migrate to, on the SQL Connect screen of the SSMA for Access?
