"Unable to import data" error received when adding data via direct ODBC connection in TIBCO Spotfire installed client.
When adding a data table via "Add (+)" > "Other" > "Load data with ODBC, OLE DB, or ADO.NET" data provider (or in versions 7.14 and lower: "Add Data Tables" > "Database..." > "Odbc Data Provider") or when opening an analysis in the TIBCO Spotfire installed client which has a data table based on an ODBC connection, the following error is thrown. "Unable to import data. See the details for more information."
The following error is seen in the error dialog and in the Spotfire.Dxp.SupportDiagnostics.log .

There is an architecture mismatch between the TIBCO Spotfire client application and the installed database driver. Using a 64-bit operating system means that the TIBCO Spotfire client is also running in 64-bit mode, but the ODBC database driver installed locally is 32-bit.
- Install 64 bit ODBC database driver.
Use a 64-bit ODBC database driver version on the client machine with a 64-Operating System. To ensure that you have the correct ODBC drivers installed, download and install the 64-bit version. For example, http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=13255 or install a 64-bit version of Microsoft Office.
- Create a 64 bit DSN (data source name).
Create a 64-bit DSN using the 64-bit version of "ODBC Data Source Administrator". When creating a DSN for use within TIBCO Spotfire installed client on a 64-bit operating system, ensure you use the 64-bit "ODBC Data Source Administrator" from the %systemdrive%\Windows\System32 folder since 32-bit DSNs will not be accessible from a 64-bit application. The Microsoft "ODBC Data Source Administrator" exists in two versions:
- The 32-bit version of the Odbcad32.exe file is located in the %systemdrive%\Windows\SysWoW64 folder.
- The 64-bit version of the Odbcad32.exe file is located in the %systemdrive%\Windows\System32 folder.
