Sorry my spanish isn't good enough to respond in your language - hopefully this will translate well or a friend that reads English can help:

ColdFusion Report Builder requires you to have the datasource set up through RDS.  If your ColdFusion server does not have RDS enabled or does not have the .DBF file you set up through ODBC mapped (in data sources) you cannot connect to the DSN.  Unfortunately ReportBuilder does NOT allow for direct connection to a datasource that is not already set up through CF Administrator.

The only other possible problem I could see for not finding the DSN name would be if you do not have the ColdFusion ODBC Server service installed and running on the ColdFusion server.  You should check this first to verify that the service is installed and currently running and then test in CF Administrator console that your .dbf file is indeed connect in data sources and verifies (the middle button with the checkmark).

Verifique que estuviera iniciado el servicio de ODBC Server, esta iniciado y corriendo; al querer agregar un DataSource en el administrador de CF, pongo en driver: ODBC socket, el nombre y al ponerle Add, en el combobox de ODBC DSN no me aparece nada, estoy un poco atorado con esta situacion muchas gracias por la ayuda.

An error occurred accessing RDS server : A connection to the RDS Server could not be established because the webserver was unreachable.
Este error me aparece al querer dar de alta mi RDS Server dentro del ReportBuilder, utlizando como parametros el nombre del Datasource que di de alta en el administrador(ODBC Socket) que ya lo pude dar de alta gracias a tu ayuda, que tengo que configurar en el Report Builder para utilizar este Datasource?, muchas gracias por tu ayuda
