  4. Click on the Next button. The Connection tab displays.
  5. Click on the Use data source name radio button and on the drop-down arrow in its field. Select the ODBC driver you have set up to connect to your MySQL repository from the list. In the setup example the driver title is Changes.
  6. If required, type in a User name and Password.
  7. If required, type in an initial catalog.
  8. Click on the Test Connection button to confirm that the details are correct.
