    DSN-less and ODBC Connections... what???

    Can someone tell me... what is the difference between an ODBC connection and a DSN-less connection? I have to pick a connection type, but I have no idea which kind I need. Thanks much!

    Hi
    visit http://www.connectionstrings.com/

    DSNless connections demand that that you know the name of the file (i.e. file based databases e.g. access or foxpro etc.) or the address of the data server (SQLserver for example). Armed with appropriate information you could open a data source without a DSN!
