Hello Experts,

I just had to connect an Access FE to a SQL Server BE (linked), but in doing so, I had to setup a user-defined ODBC.

My question is, do i need to define an ODBC on every machine that i want my FE to be used on, or is there a way to "ship" this, or perhaps define it as a connection string in VBA?
