To use a data source with an application you have developed, you must use ODBC Administrator to configure it. ODBC Administrator keeps track of available data sources and their connection information in the Windows registry. Use ODBC Administrator to add, modify, and delete data sources in the Data Sources dialog box and to add and delete ODBC drivers.
This information applies when you use MFC Data Access Object (DAO) classes for ODBC access and when you use MFC ODBC classes.
ODBC Administrator is automatically installed with the Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) library database support. For more information about the ODBC Administrator program, see ODBC Administrator and the online ODBC API Reference Help system.
