This is the path to 64 Bit ODBC connections on a 64 bit machine.

You can access the 32 bit ODBC Connections from this path on a 32 Bit or 64 Bit machine.
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools\Data Sources (ODBC).link

If that doesn't work you may need to remove your Office 2010 which is default 32bit and install Access as a 64bit program.  

Be careful however, as a 64bit install will not allow you to use 32 bit plug in's or specialized interactive programs like cite while 
you write with endnote, for example.

Dear Statalist,

I'm having an issue with an odbc link to access database. I know that the link is working fine as SAS is able to import the tables.

I get the following error when trying to import tables or just running an 'odbc list'. The odbc link is listed when in connections but will error if clicking on particular database connection.

The ODBC driver reported the following diagnostics
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application

I believe this is a 32bit Access vs 64bit Stata issue. Any advice would be appreciated.

Apologies if this issue is documented. I have searched through my 14000 Statalist emails and could not find any relevant info.

I'll take this opportunity to recommend, and to thank StataCorp et al for, the UK Stata Users Group meeting - a very valuable learning experience in terms of both Statistics and Stata programming.  

Best Regards
