Cannot initialize the data source object of OLE DB provider

Aug 11 2017 10:48 AM
Hi all,
 
I am creating linked server from my SQL server 2014 for MySQL database using ODBC driver, but I am getting error
 
 
"Cannot initialize the data source object of OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "MYSQL".
OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "MYSQL" returned message "[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified". (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 7303)"
 
Please let me know any suggestion or solution on it
