Why do I receive the error "No ODBC driver is installed" when I try to retrieve data in Microsoft Excel for Mac OS X?

On Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger), you will be unable to retrieve data from ODBC data sources to Excel 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).
