ODBC works in Excel not Access

P: n/a
I have created an ODBC connection to our Teradata database. Whenever I
attempt to link to a table on Teradata the process seems to be working.
But then I get the error message, "Reserved error (-7778); there is no
message for this error." The diaglog box of tables to select appears,
but there are no tables present.

The usual answer to these ODBC types of questions seem to be that there
is something wrong with your ODBC connection string. However this same
ODBC definition works just fine from MS Excel.

What is there about MS Access that won't recognize the ODBC connection?
