On Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger), you will be unable to retrieve data from ODBC data sources to Excel X unless you install the iODBC SDK. This is because Microsoft Query (an application that Excel uses to retrieve external data) is a CFM application, and the ODBC libraries that Apple install are Mach-O libraries (a different format).
