Find data files in the data connections file browser

The Select Tables screen will only show files that match the Data Source type (Excel, text, Access, etc).  Double-check to make sure that the selected Data Source type is the actual type of data in the file in question. For example, a common mistake would be selecting Excel (.xls, .xlsx, .xlsb) as the Data Source, however the actual type of data in the file is a Text (.csv)
