When you create a data source after you install the Microsoft Data Access Pack, the Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) driver for Lotus 1-2-3 or Windows Messaging is not available.


The Data Access Pack installs Installable Indexed Sequential Access Method (IISAM) drivers for Lotus 1-2-3 and Windows Messaging but does not install ODBC drivers for these products. The Microsoft Jet engine can use the IISAM drivers to import or export data from Microsoft Access or Microsoft Excel. However, Microsoft Query cannot be used with these IISAM drivers.


This behavior is by design of the Data Access Pack.
