    Fedor Zarkhin

      I've installed the ODBC MySQL driver and set it up under User DSN, as per the instructions, but Tableau won't connect. It says:

       

      I'm very much a newbie here, so this might be a dumb question. Still, I feel like I've done everything various instructions have told me to do...

       

      "The drivers necessary to connect to this database server are not properly installed.  Visit http://www.tableausoftware.com/drivers to download driver setup files.

       

      [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified

       

       

      Unable to connect to the server "localhost". Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested database.

      Unable to connect to the server. Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested database."

       

      Please help!

       

      Thank you.
