Hi there-

I am trying to find out if there is a way of migrating or copying the ODBC connection settings from one machine to another (in Windows XP). I am not worried about the password information to be carried through correctly, because they use NT authentication in SQL server. I have to do this for a number of machines, so it would be helpful to "export" odbc connection information from one machine and then to import into other.

TIA
