@Rick93,

What data source do you create ODBC dsn for?

Re: ODBC Connection Error - Driver Error

I honestly have no idea - this is a corporate PC if that helps at all.

 

When trying to extract the data on to Excel I am going to:

 

Data

Get data

From other sources

ODBC

Kopen (the programme we use).

 

It's when I select one of the options listed below that it fails to work.

@Rick93,

Do you create dsn for Kopen ? Have you tried the ODBC connector in Power BI Desktop?

@Rick93,

Do you create a dsn named KOPEN? What is the original data source in the dsn?
