E9.2 Trying to access Business data (sequel) through MS-Access


I am trying to tap the JDE Businessdata database in MS-Access as I have to do some comparisons. It is easier for me to create intermediate tables and match data with another access table. I have done it by tapping the JDE using Import -> ODBC Database then selecting the correct Data Source name, which is the sql-listener name for our production database. Now it just gives me INFORMATION_SCHEMA_ tables & SYS.all_ tables, not Business Data. Have attached the screen to this post.

I have done this until a few years before. Maybe the sequel upgrades or changes in config has changed it now. Any thoughts?
We have SQL server Management Studio v18.9.2

Thank you, in advance?

When you are going through the wizard to setup your connection make sure you select the business data DB as your default DB.
