The ODBC driver your Excel is trying to use on on the same machine as Excel, which gather is NOT the machine with Mysql.

You'll need to go to the machine with MySQL, connect to mysql with commandline client using root, and GRANT privileges for user@excel.machine or user@%.

Then in the ODBC driver on the Excel machine, the hostname is the ip address, or host name of the machine with mysql on it.

Good luck,
Barry.
