    MS Query using ODBC - ISAM Error message in Windows 7

    I have a spread sheet that I've written using a Windows 7 64 bit machine. Within the file I have a query out to another spreadsheet using the ODBC Excel file connection.

    When I created this - everything worked fine, and it refreshed without problems. Then, I opened the file on a Windows XP machine running Excel 2000. I refreshed my query, and it all worked fine.

    But, now when I reload the same file on the Windows 7 machine and hit the refresh button I get the following error: "Could not find installable ISAM.".

    I've done some searching around, but I can't seem to find anything that will help me figure out why this connection breaks between the different versions of Excel.

    If this is deemed to be more of a general Windows question, please feel free to move me over there.

    Thank you,
