Exception: DBD, [Microsoft][ODBC Excel Driver] Syntax error in FROM clause.

Dear experts,

I'm trying to create an universe linked to an Excel File.

I've created the ODBc connection and the DNS Data Source and inserted the table (table name RAC$) in the Universe. however, when I try to map each table field in the universe's Objects I'm getting this error message:

"Exception: DBD, [ODBC Excel Driver] Syntax error in FROM clause.State:37000".

I've tried to rename the table, inserting square brackects and also add new parameters to the universe («Transactional Available = "Yes"» and «Delimited Identifier = "Yes"») but still no solution to my problem.

Any advice, tip or trick?

Thank you. My best regards.

Inês Santos
