I am looking for code to create an ODBC database.  I do not want to create a database and then go into Control Panel in Windows to create an ODBC connection.  I need a way to create a database and then create ODBC connection within  code.   I know how to create a non-ODBC database, but I need to make an ODBC connection to MS Access in code.

Try this

Public m_rdoConn As rdoConnection
Public m_rdoErr As rdoError
Public m_rdoResult As rdoResultset
Public m_rdoEnv As rdoEnvironment
Public m_rdoCol As rdoColumn

Set m_rdoEnv = rdoEnvironments(0)
Set m_rdoConn = m_rdoEnv.OpenConnection(dsname:="", _
                prompt:=rdDriverComplete, _
                Connect:="uid=sa;pwd=zaq12wsx;driver={SQL Server};" _
                & "server=Auc_s2_Central;database=Auction;")

FYI - This is called a DSN-LESS connection.  It does not require an ODBC entry.
