You have at least 2 choices:

Source 1: SQL Server 2008 Feature Pack
 
... this includes Microsoft OLEDB Provider for DB2
 
Source 2: Available from IBM, is the IBM I Access pack
 
Remember, whichever one you use, you will need to specifiy which libraries under the detail/advance settings in ODBC.

That is a very good question..to which only Microsoft has the answer!:-) In the meantime, suffice it to say that every once in awhile, Visio loses track of your Glue/SnapTo settings which you'll need to restore. Here's what to do:

1. In Visio, navigate to "Home", open "View", expand "Visual Aids"
2. Once in "Visual Aids", Check or Re-Check the "Glue"box.
3. Under the "Snap To" category, be sure shape intersections, shape handles, shape vertices,
   and connection points are all checked.
4. Under the "Glue To" category, make sure the shape handles, shape vertices,
   and connection points are all checked.

That's it!
