Matlab Used to Log into SQL Server

I?m trying to pull data from SQL Server into Matlab. I setup a connection to my DB; I tested the connection and everything was ok, so I?d expect to easily write some SQL and get my data set. However, as soon as I click Data Source > SQL Server, I get prompted to enter a Username and Password. I actually don?t have a Username or Password for my SQL Server DB, so this is baffling. Even more weird, is when I click Excel Files or MS Access Database, I still get prompted to enter a Username and Password. I have no Username and Password for any Excel files, MS Access DB, or SQL Server DB. So where is this annoying message coming from, and how can I stop it? It should be super-easy to do a query into a data source, but I can?t do anything whatsoever, because Matlab keeps asking for a Username and Password, and there is no such thing anywhere on my computer.

Since I have no Username and Password, I click cancel and get this message:
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified.

What??!!! I already set it up and tested it; everything is OK!!

How can I disable this annoying message and get this dang thing working?
