    After upgrading from a Win98 to a Win2000 PC, I am unable to refresh data on an Excel file that is on stored on a file server. I get the following error: [Microsoft][ODBC driver manager]Data Source Name not found and no default driver specified I just cancel out or there after that. Funny thing is if I log in as Administrator, I have no problems. So, its pointing to a permissions thing, but don't know enough about this area.
    Thank you for your help

    I'd say that last link looks to be the closest. I'd install <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/Data/download_250RTM.htm">MDAC 2.5</a> or later. Reinstalling MDAC resolves a lot of ODBC probs.
