Make thematic map of external data linked to labels

Ok, so in map3d I can use

 

attach data source

connect data source

define link templates

generate data links

 

(in that order) to attach data in an excel spreadsheet to a bunch of text objects in my drawing.  The spreadsheet is keyed on the text in the text objects.

 

However - I can't then make a thematic map based on this data!  Using the thematic map tool, with either "data" or "sql" expression, acad reports that "No link templates exist".  Which seems odd because I already linked the data in using one.

 

Can anyone solve this problem for me?

Which ODBC driver did you use to link your DWG objects to the Excel records?

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (well this is what it says in properties for the attached data source anyway)
