I am running Stata/MP 11.1 on a new 64-bit Windows 7 laptop. My
previous laptop had the same setup, but with less RAM. When I try to
load an Excel file, I now get:

. odbc query "Excel"
The ODBC driver reported the following diagnostics
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] The specified DSN contains an
architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application
SQLSTATE=IM014
r(682);

This used to work, but no longer does. I saw that someone had a
similar issue with Acesss files, but I swear this used to work before
with my old 64-bit laptop.

Is the only solution to this purchase a 32-bit version of Stata to
load Excel files?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My understanding about this is that it has nothing to do with Stata, but rather
that the 64-bit ODBC driver installed with 64-bit Windows 7 is incompatible with
32-bit applications of Microsoft Office 2007 (and earlier) such as Excel and 
Access.  . . . at least that's if you're using the 2007 (or earlier) version of 
Microsoft's suite.

I believe that the most direct solution to the problem is to upgrade to the 
64-bit Office 2010 version.  Is it possible to download and install 32-bit ODBC 
drivers for Excel and Access, and then run them in your 64-bit Windows 7 system
in some kind of 32-bit emulation mode, just as you're now doing for Excel?
