Error in Data Insight 'View Data' - SQL ODBC communication link failure

Hi I am hoping someone can help. We are running Information Steward 4.0 and are receiving the following error when Viewing Data in Data Insight.

ODBC error: SELECT query <SELECT ‘Material_Ojbect”…..>failed. The database error message is <SQL submitted to ODBC data source <CEDSQ802\D2A> resulted in error…. When selecting “View Data” option to view an external database.

The connections test successfully in the CMC. Additionally I am able to browse to the metadata to add new tables etc. I am just not able to "view data' within those tables.
