Connection to external database via ODBC

Postby rbutner » Fri May 26, 2017 5:21 am

I have established an ODBC connection to an external database. I am able to access this database via Access 2016; but, I have be unable to access it via either Excel 2016 (using the Get & Transform option) or Power BI. I am able to "see" the database; but, I can see neither the individual data tables nor their contents.

I had limited success in accessing the data via Excel 2016 using the Get External Data - From Other Sources option.

Does anyone have a suggestion to correct this issue?
