I'm using Microsoft SQL Server 2017 remotely.

I'm using Microsoft Visio for Office 365 MSO (16.0.11328.20220) 32 bit.

I downloaded and installed the ODBC Driver 17 for SQL server.

Within Visio:
  1. I created a new Database Model Diagram from the Software and Database template
  2. I clicked on Database -> Reverse Engineer.
  3. Under Setup, ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server is the only driver selected
  4. I double click on my data source.
  5. I enter the password for the data source.
  6. The following error comes up - "The currently selected Visio driver is not compatible with the data source"

Any assistance one might give is most appreciated.

Much thanks,
David Bach
