When trying to get data from SQL 2008 to Excel 2010 with the attached ODC file i have one PC that fails (all other PC's works)

The PC reports back :
Data could not be retrived from the database
Check the database server or contact your database administrator. Make sure that the external database is available, and then try the operation again.

The pc is a newly installed Windows 7 professional and the Excel 2010 is version 14.0.06023.1000 (32-bit)

Thanks in advance
Henrik

Sounds like you may need to install the Access Database Engine for your version of Office. Search google for it and choose the right one for your version of Office.

Found the solution - we deleted the users profile on the PC.

We have replicated this issue - it happens when we transfer the users profile via Windows Easy Transfer.
