The DSN should then be stored in the ODBC configuration:

1. Open your ODBC management control panel applet. [b]Note: If you are on a 64-bit system and the ODBC driver is a 32-bit driver then you will need to open the 32-bit ODBC management control panel applet.[/b]

To open the native ODBC management control panel applet you can simply open control panel and go to Administrative tools and locate ODBC Data Sources.Capture.JPGIf you need to open the 32-bit applet but do not find it in the Control Panel, browse to C:\windows\system32\ and run odbcad32.exe.

2. Locate the associated DSN in either User DSN, System DSN or File DSN. [b]Note: Different drivers have different setup instructions.[/b].
