I too have this problem.
By leaving the Initial Calalog blank I can get as far as a dialog where I can choose which table I wish to acccess. However after selecting it I get the message "Word was unable to open the data source."

Like others I can access the data via excel.

I have saved a log file as requested and can send it on if someone can tell me where to send it.

It is so frustrating to be so close to getting this connection working but failing.

Does anyone have a cure yet?
