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

    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

    So I can't import the ODBC file to my webfolder.  The Web Admin has to create it?

    Thank you Marv-in
