Microsoft has not developed a 64-bit Access or a 64-bit Excel ODBC driver.
The workaround for Simon is to add his Access (or Excel) datasources to the
32-bit Windows ODBC driver manager (C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe) and use
32-bit Stata for Windows to load his data.  Since Simon has already added his
datasources to the 32-bit ODBC driver manager the only step Simon has left is
to download the 32-bit Stata for Windows executable at the below URL to his
Stata install directory and use 32-bit Stata to load his data.

Simon can -save- the data from 32-bit Stata and -use- it in 64-bit Stata
if he prefers to perform his analyses in 64-bit Stata.
