How to Run an Agent on Domino Server from Workstation

I have an agent running on the Domino Server (8.5.2) which reads a MYOB file through ODBC on the same server at a scheduled time. The ODBC Connection has to be on the server and not on any workstation. Is there a way from a Lotus Notes Workstation to call the agent to run on the server, as if you have a button which calls  Agent.Run, the Agent falls over when it tries to connect to the ODBC source as it cannot find it on the workstation. I would like some users to be able to invoke the agent "on demand"

Several. Since you already have an agent, the easiest way way would be to get a handle on it and invoke the RunOnServer method.
