st: odbc connectivity

Dear statalist
I would like to view and load an ODBC source (connected by SQL server)
into stata. Earlier, I had followed the necessary steps (control
panel->administrative tools->data sources (odbc)->relevent dialog
boxes) to successfully create the odbc source to be viewed.
The problem is that while stata lists the source (called HerculesDB),
it doesn't load the tables

. odbc list

Data Source Name                   Driver
MS Access Database                 Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)
Excel Files                        Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls, *.xlsx, *.xl
dBASE Files                        Microsoft Access dBASE Driver (*.dbf, *.ndx
HerculesDB                         SQL Server

. odbc query "HerculesDB"
ODBC error; type -set debug on- and re-run command to see extended
error information

. set debug on

. odbc query "HerculesDB"
Connection Parameters: DSN=HerculesDB;
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Login failed for user
'ECON\n09040'., SQLSTATE=28000
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Login failed for user

The description of the error says that a "common cause is insufficient
permissions to connect to the data source". Having tried all options
nevertheless, I would appreciate your alternative suggestions to solve
the problem..

Thanking you
Best regards
Abhimanyu Arora
