ODBC connections after upgrade to SAS EG 5.1 are gone

Our company recently upgraded to SAS EG 5.1 and in the process, our ODBC connection that we used to utilize through Microsoft Access are now gone and we need to rebuild them. We have instructions on how to rebuild them, but is there something different after the upgrade as when we have tried, the connections are not working.

When you re-built the ODBC connections in the Data source (ODBC) manager did you give them the same name as you specified within your sas program?

If not, they will not work

When you upgraded to  Eguide 5.1 did they remove SAS/Base-Foundation from your machine?

Was you was using the ms-access with the SAS/Base_foundation on your machine it would say a lot about what has happened.
