Adding Sybase as data source in MS Excel

Adding Sybase as data source in MS Excel

Hi! Does anybody know how I can import data into MS Excel from Sybase by using Sybase as data source? I have been able to do this easily in MS Excel with Oracle as my data source (Oracle was part of data source list in ms excel by default).

Any idea/help will be appreciated greatly!


RE: Adding Sybase as data source in MS Excel


In Start Settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Data Sources (ODBC), in one of the DSN tabs (I use System DSN), ADD and configure you Sybase Driver.  This will make it visible when you do Data > Import External Data... in Excel.
