Configuring Data Sources with the ODBC Data Source Administrator

The ODBC Data Source Administrator is a Microsoft utility to configure ODBC data sources and drivers.

ODBC uses the term "data source" to refer all the information an application needs to connect to a particular database. This information includes the driver name and location, network address, network software, and database name. Depending on the version of Windows, the ODBC Data Source Administrator stores data source information in text files or in the system registry.

The ODBC Data Source Administrator lets you enter the connection details for accessing a c-treeACE database and associate it with a data source name that users refer to when they need to access the data through an ODBC application.
