The Advanced tab is not present in 5.1.

If you can't find the ODBC Data Sources in the menu and can't be bothered to enable the admin tools: just enter odbccp32.cpl on the commandline.

In Vista the command-line (Run) seems to be "ODBCAD32".

In Windows 7 Pro x64 with MS Access 2010 and MS Excel 2010, I had to use a Data Source Name (DSN) which did not have spaces in it. Otherwise I would receive the error: "Could not determine the driver name; could not lookup setup library.".

Additionally, I had to install the 32 bit ODBC Connector first, and then install the 64 bit ODBC Connector on top of the 32 bit Connector.

If you are using Access 2013 on Windows 7/8 to define a MySQL System DSN and are finding that the DSN you defined does not subsequently appear on the list of system DSNs, you need to Run Access 2013 (or Run the Data Sources (ODBC) tool in Administrative Tools) 'as Administrator' before defining the DSN. Unless you do this Windows will not save the defined DSN but won't warn you why.
