I have a VB.NET application that uses the ODBCConnection object to connect to a DSN that is defined using the iSeries Access ODBC driver.  Right now, I can connect  using the DSN name "AS400", like this: dsn=AS400 as the connection string.  
The problem is... my application doesn't Prompt for a user login to the ODBC connection.  Is there a way to add a default user and password to the connection OR a way to bring up a prompt for it the first time a connection is requested?
