ODBC

Hi,

I know how to use ODBC to create a DSN for a database.

But,  I want to know:
- Where is the DSN saved on my hard disk
- When the DSN file is created,  does it hold the full path of the database?  
- Can I edit the path if I want to move the database?

Thank you

1) in the registry - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI
2) no its only has the path to the local odbc driver - which you have to specify your server name userid and password to connecto to in the code
3) database administration has to happen through the database manager software
