ODBC Managment

Does any one now if there is a .Net equivalent of 'ODBC driver & Datasource name functions'? I need to be able to create, edit and extract information fromn DSN's. I have implemented a suggestion that uses the SQLDataSources and SQLConfigDataSource functions but I can't find the required code for returning information about a single DSN. I need to be able to get the datapath information.

I guess you'll need to query the registry for that. If you're using a System-DSN, it should be showing up at HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\[your DSN-name]\DBQ.

Cheers & HTH,

Cheers for that Olaf.

Never had to query the registry. Would you be able to advise?

I suggest you read the following article:  http://www.codeproject.com/vb/net/registry_with_vb.asp
It should contain all you need to work with the registry.

BTW - why did you close your question already? No need to do so unless you're really satisfied with what you got ... :-)

Cheers,
