MS Access - Embed ODBC Connection Info?
Posted on 2010-09-13
So, this is probably an obvious question for the experts, but I've done some digging and haven't come across an answer.
I have an MS Access app that links to SQL tables on the back end. I'd like to have our team copy the app onto their local systems and run it from there (for performance reasons). However, this typically involves setting up the ODBC connection on each workstation, which is can be a pain in our environment.
Is there not a way to embed the ODBC connection info 'within' the Access DB? Or, must I always use a DSN file?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
