Default ODBC Connection problem with .csv file

I'm trying to build an ODBC connection to a .csv file as per instructions on page 50 of 'Beginning VB.Net Databases' book.

It seems that my Microsoft Visual Studio Standard Edition does not allow creation of connections for this type of file as it comes with this file type not supported with this version message, or words to that effect.

I am a student so I can't afford thousands for the enterprise edition of Visual Studio. Any suggestions?

Import the csv file to Excel or Access, or another database type that you can support for now. The connection process and data usage should be about the same for purposes of your excercises.
