Use of Excel Connector with New Salesforce Security Token

Salesforce has introduced this new security token and I can't login any more.  I have downloaded the security token so I can log into the website but I can't use the connector.  Its says I have to add it to the logon, but I don't know how.  Does anybody know?
 
Thanks,
NSM

1 Log in to Salesforce via the browser to request your security token.

2 Go to Setup -> My Personal Information -> Reset Security Token.

3 Click the Reset Security Token button to trigger an email which will contain your security token.

4 Select and copy the token from the email (example: a6Lgob979LW4anxfbhtDgtukr)

5 In Excel, execute the connector and when prompted for your password, enter the combination of your password and the security token. For example, if your password is "MyPassword" and your security token is "a6Lgob979LW4anxfbhtDgtukr", you would enter MyPassworda6Lgob979LW4anxfbhtDgtukr into the password field.
