st: Stata 12 64bit odbc

Dear Readers

It seems Stata 12 MP 64 bit Windows 7 cannot read odbc files defined
using c:\windows\sysWOW64\odbcad32.exe

I came across the work around given for Stata 11
( and was
wondering if there were a more satisfactory soultion now. The problem
with this work around (installing Stata 12 32 bit, loading the odbc
data in 32 bit, saving and then loading it into 64 bit is that it is
cumbersome especially if the odbc data gets updated over time. As a p
rogram one has to pass over both the odbc name and the table name at
least, and he code is not portable between 32 and 64 bit stata
versions so that it cannot be shared with all colleagues.

It would be nice to read odbc files directly into 64 bit Stata.

Thanks for any help
