Excel as a data source to create universe


I am trying to create a universe from Excel.Steps i followed are

1) Saved the Excel file in my desktop

2) Created ODBC connection by selecting Microsoft Excel Driver(*.xls) from System DSN, Gave DSN Name by selecting the Excel file from Work book.

3)Opened the Designer-> Parameters->new connection->Generic ODBC Data base Source->ODBC Drivers->Selected the DSN from drop down list and gave Connection name-> Tested the connection and it is responding.

4) Copied the Excel Table from the table browser and created Class and Objects.

When i try to see the data from the dimension object properties i am getting the following error.

Exception: DBD, [Microsoft][ODBC Excel Driver] Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression ''ALL Duplicates$'.Supplier Partner Master Name'.State: 37000

Does anyone have idea where i am doing wrong?

Thanks in Advance

      Thanks Guys for all your support.

      The issue was resolved now, The problem is Column names have spaces and hypen "-" in between them which is not supported at Universe Level.

      If i make column names as one word then i am able to get the data at the universe.
