*The Data Source should now be setup.*

Best to create a new database.
- Hit FILE, GET EXTERNAL DATA
- You need to then select LINK TABLES.
A table list will come up. Link the ones you're interested in.
- Use the Logon Name: ODBCUSER and Password: ODBCUSER (You may get an error when you try to execute. Ignore it.)
- After a minute or so, you should see a list of tables.
You can select which ones you plan to use.

Sun JVM Manual Installation page
Assuming you have some version of a Windows operating system:
- Go to the Windows Update
page FIRST and make sure you have ALL critical, security and browser updates
EXCEPT FOR "810030: Microsoft VM Security Update". (Accessed only by Internet Explorer browser.)
- After all of those Windows updates have been properly installed
(restarting your machine, when necessary), go to
the Sun JVM Manual Installation page and select the JRE
(java runtime environment) for your operating system -- windows is at
the top via a Download link. (You can run it automatically, but
if something goes wrong, it won't tell you.)
- Run the downloaded JRE file on your machine.
- After it runs, go to the Control Panel and doubleclick
on the Java Console.
Under Browser, make sure your browser(s)-of-choice are "checked".
- In Internet Explorer, choose "Tools" then "Internet Options..." then
the "Advanced" tab. MAKE SURE that you have one header for "Microsoft VM" and
one header for "Java (Sun)". Under "Microsoft VM", the "JIT compiler..." should
be checked and "Use Java 2..." should be checked under the "Java (Sun)"
header. If not, check 'em, and restart your machine.
- If you're still having problems accessing the EFS Chat Room,
including for the reason of installing that "810030" windows update,
then UNCHECK the "JIT compiler..." box, restart and try again.
- ...Sorry it's so
complicated, but that's the choice of IE's creator.
