That is what I am doing, and the error happens when opening the ODBC source
in Excel. What platform and ADSM client level are you running. I am running
Win95 with ADSM client V3.1.0.6.

Thank You,

                First, create a system DSN through the control panel.
                What I'm doing in Access is to create links to the ADSM
tables through
                the tables menue
                (File -> External data -> Link tabels, select ODBC database
as file type).
                Then I select the created system DSN as a computer data
source (don't
                know the exact term because I use a German version). Then
I'm prompted
                for a ADSM userid and password. I only have to give it once
for each

                Hope this helps.
