    Hi Guys,

    Faced this problem.
    Upgraded my PC to a windows 7 64bit professional.
    However, I'm unable to read a xml file generated by accounting software (ACCPAC) stored in my windows NT 2003 server.

    Error message: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified

    Please help.

    If your upgrade was from a 32 bit version of Windows then your problem lies in the fact that ODBC comes in both 32 bit and 64 bit versions on a 64 bit machine. Control panel Adminitrative Tools - Data Sources gets you to the 64-bit version. The 32 bit version you need to access manually from: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe.
