    I am desperate to find an exact recipe returning ODBC functionality to
    my new Vista 64 computer. I have hundreds of data management scripts
    all using ODBC to grab data from Access, Excel, and Oracle files for
    analysis in Stata or SAS. But in Vista 64, I only see a driver for SQL.
    I was using XP x64 in my old computer, and I had a list of drivers a
    yard long that included all my data sources in several languages.

    I need simple explicit directions to some file I can download from
    Microsoft that will install all the needed ODBC drivers and get my data
    connections back. On forums like this, I see bits and pieces of an
    answer, but mostly a lot of anger over this issue.:mad:

    If anyone has solved this problem, I'd appreciate the info. Thanks.

  3. For Oracle you'll need patch #5699495 . You'll need a valid
    Oracle support contract ("support identifier") since AFAIK it's only
    available from metalink.
