Description:
I am trying to connect to create a new data source in Excel 97 using the My
SQL driver using New Database Query.  I select New Datasource, then enter a
name, then select the MySQL ODBC 3.51 driver.  Then when I press "connect" it
gives me an error message "Cannot find driver {MySQL ODBC 3.51 driver} in system
information.

How to repeat:
Open Excel and click Data > Get External Data.  Select New Datasource, then enter a name, then select the MySQL ODBC 3.51 driver.  Press "connect".  The error message "Cannot find driver {MySQL ODBC 3.51 driver} in system information" is displayed.

I was unable to repeat with Excel 2003 and latest MyODBC, then maybe is an issue
with Excel 97.
