I need to change multiple ODBC connection - DSNs, can this be done via a script?

Currently we would have an ODBC connection with the below information

Name: comrcn02ddsspxx
Server: comrcn02ddsspxx
Database: unifi
Username: report
Password: xxxxx

It would need to change to this with the server, username and password changing

Name: comrcn02ddsspxx
Server: lsdad2
Database: unifi
Username: mtg_br_readonly
Password: xxxxxx

A common way is to export the settings from registry and back. DSNs are stored in HKLM\Software\ODBC\Odbc.ini respective HKCU.
