Are you trying to add a user or system ODBC?

If you have it configued on a server you could export the ODBC connection from the registry and merge it back in on the server.

i went through the odbc data source administrator and I see my entry but it does not show when I open the application as an option.  If I do it on a regular workstation or server then it works.  It seems to be a citrix issue

You should check the registry permission on your Citrix server for the key:
HLKM\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI

and check that your particular users have at least Read permissions.

use regedt32.exe to give the group Domain Users access to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI\(system dsn name here) key. I selected all Allow for all permissions and applied to 'This key only'.

Could it be you are using a 64Bit desktop (e.g. 2008R2) but a 32Bit application (e.g. Office)?

If so you need to run the ODBC setup tool odbcad32.exe in C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and not from the control panel.
