Help with MySQL and ODBC

Help with MySQL and ODBC


I am stuck on how to configure ODBC with MySQL.

I am still trying to use the WebAssist database tutorial.

I get a server problem and it asks to verify that the ODBC DSN exists with the testing server.

I have Vista which has ODBC, but the Sql data base wasn't installed.

I need to add MYSQL to this list (which I have tried) that will allow the Webassist database to work.

Windows has the dbase,excel and MS Access setup. This is under the user DSN which I believe I should be adding SQL.

Can anybody help with this?
