    Looking at a documentation, it appears that the referenced ODBC driver works with Excel 2013, but there are a number of postings that state that you can use a earlier 32-bit version for Excel 2007. I have tried those versions and it doesn’t create the ODBC Data Source. Which one should I use and what are the steps to have it appear as an ODBC source.

    Thanks

    Yes, I’ve tried three so far and they haven’t showed correctly in the ODBC Data Source Administrator as did the latest Excel 64-bit version. That’s why I’m confused about which one to use. It shows up in the Add and Remove programs, but not the ODBC Administrator. I installed HortonworksHiveODBC32.msi.

    There are multiple ODBC driver downloads, look for the 32-bit MSI.

    I was able to successfully download and install the driver, but it didn’t work because I’m using Excel 2007 (32-bit). The problem is that is 64-bit and setup for Excel 2013 64-bit. I wasn’t able to locate the 32-bit version.

    Hi, Have you tried the driver installation instructions that were delivered with the 2.0 Sandbox? And, have you tried a different browser? Sandbox does not support IE10.

    For Excel 2007 you need to install the 32-bit driver.
