I need to Copy system DSN's from one machine to another.
Is there any VBScript that can copy out system DSNs from one machine and install on another.

I have 25 DSNs that I need to extract

    from the registry you can select the system DSN you want to copy.
    from the menu select Export Registry File.  It will create a .reg file that you can copy and run on the other computer.

    Do I have to do this individually for each DSN?
