I am running an internal cold fusion site in our office.  It uses MySQL as the backend.  I have created some spreadsheets that do queries on this database, and I would like every station to be able to do the same.  However, the only way this works (AFAIK) is that you have to install MyODBC on every workstation and add a Data Source for it on, also on every workstation.

Is that true?  And if so, is there a way to deploy MyODBC and add a DSN to every workstation in the AD?
