This is driving my users slowly mad!  Each time they open the application they have to type in the DSN user name for the ODBC link (there is no password required but user id was unavoidable when setting up the DSN).
Is there an easy way to bypass this? I've tried to write code that creates a DSN each time with user id provided in code, but this isn't easy as I don't know the details of the server / database that I'm connecting to!
Any other suggestions would be greatfully received.
