DSN connection no longer works after upgrading to excel 2016

I have been using iseries access odbc drivers to connect excel 2010 to our iseries database. We recently upgraded t excel 2016 and the drivers do not appear to work any more. old reports that i created in 2010 will refresh in the 2016 version and i can edit the definitions with no problem. i just cant get a brand new connection in excel to connect. I get the following error attached. The database i am connecting to is running V6R1. The strange thing is i have another Iseries database that i can still connect to using excel 2016 but it is on version 7R1
