I agree with you on the support team. Somebody is approving this answers, but it seems that no one gives any feedback. This question arose at least 3 times lately. I am also a newbie and found a way to at least be able to continue the tutorial:
1. Instead of selecting a ODBE connection, I selected a OLE-DB connection;
2. In the "Create new connection" dialog :
- Select provider : Microsoft Office 15.0(/12.0) Access Database Engine OLE-DB provider ; if you don't have this, just choose another close to this; (look for Microsoft Office, Access in case of access databases);
- Data source: exact path, including file name;
- Name it and CREATE;
Doing this I was able to see and select the fields needed.
