- Copy the sample database Northwind.mdb to the root directory of drive C.
- Create a new Access database.
- Create a module and type the following lines in the Declarations section:
Const ODBC_ADD_SYS_DSN = 4 'Add data source
Const ODBC_CONFIG_SYS_DSN = 5 'Configure (edit) data source
Const ODBC_REMOVE_SYS_DSN = 6 'Remove data source
Private Declare Function SQLConfigDataSource Lib "ODBCCP32.DLL" (ByVal _
hwndParent As Long, ByVal fRequest As Long, ByVal _
lpszDriver As String, ByVal lpszAttributes As String) As Long
- Type the following procedure:
Function Build_SystemDSN(DSN_NAME As String, Db_Path As String)
Dim ret%, Driver$, Attributes$
Driver = "Microsoft Access Driver (*.MDB)" & Chr(0)
Attributes = "DSN=" & DSN_NAME & Chr(0)
Attributes = Attributes & "Uid=Admin" & Chr(0) & "pwd=" & Chr(0)
Attributes = Attributes & "DBQ=" & Db_Path & Chr(0)
ret = SQLConfigDataSource(0, ODBC_ADD_SYS_DSN, Driver, Attributes)
'ret is equal to 1 on success and 0 if there is an error
If ret <> 1 Then
MsgBox "DSN Creation Failed"
- In the Immediate window, type the following line, and then press ENTER:? Build_SystemDSN("My SampleDSN","c:\Northwind.mdb")
- Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
- In Control Panel, click ODBC Data Sources, ODBC Data Sources (32-bit), or 32bit ODBC.
- Click the System DSN tab. Note that My SampleDSN has been added to the
System Data Sources list.
