Does anyone here can show me how to make an application that is like an odbc wizard that could register a sql server type connection? I have found one on the net through searching but it does not accept the UID and password of the sql server. I also read somewhere in the msdn forum that no one in ms has finished it,and said it is found in the japanese website, i don't if it is true. I have this problem because my report runs through odbc. I am already pulling my hair. please share some of your expertise and knowledge. hoping for the positive replies.
