Sandbox Tutorial 8 – ODBC error

  • #40536

    Hi all,

    Following the instructions in the tutorial 8 to connect Excel to Hive ODBC via Microsoft Query, I get the following error message:
    “The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the driver and application”

    I’m not sure if it does not use the correct ODBC or what… because, when I open the ODBC Administrator and test the connection, it works fine.

    Any guess?

    Windows 7 (64 bits)
    HW Sandbox 1.3 (64 bits)
    HW ODBC driver (64 bits)
    MS Excel 2010 (64 bits)

    It has been solved. I figured it out my MS Excel 2010 was actually 32 bits. Then I installed the HW ODBC driver 32 bits and it worked perfectly!
