I would like to write a program to let use to select the Data Source from ODBC make use of the ODBC Dialog (the same case as Import Data from ODBC Database using Access). How can I do that? how to popup the ODBC window and return the user's selection?

If you did not give any data source name, automatically the ODBC Select Data Source Window will get displayed, and the selected DSN will get connected.

    Dim db As Database
    Set db = OpenDatabase("")
