Can someone let me know the difference between a machine dsn which shows up in Access for connecting to one of our SQL servers vs an ODBC system dsn from control panel?
I have  a user that needs to change a machine dsn and I cannot seem to access/edit it from within Access and it doesn't show up under control panel system dsn's. Thanks
