.xlsx file extensions in Vista x64


New Member
Through an Excel 2007 class I have been taking I've ran into an issue while trying to import another .xlsx Excel file as a database via the Data>From Other Sources>From Microsoft Query.

In the Choose Data Source dialog box under Excel only the older .xls file type is listed, when I try to instal a new driver that includes the .xlsx type I get all kinds of error messages telling me setup routines and ODBC driver could not be found, component not found in registry.

I've been looking around the web and see references to this issue but no clear-cut way to find the driver I need and instal it.

Anyone got this one figured out??
