Hi,

I appreciate DIC's policy, but I'm not sure where to start.

I was hoping someone who may know something about ODBC data sources can point me in the right direction.

Thank you for your help.

Iíll try that site when I get home Ėitís blocked at work. I did a little more snooping on MSDN(.com) and found a Win32 API. There doesn't seem to be a .Net translation, so I'll be wrapping those calls myself. The first will probably be SQLDataSources.

Please reply if youíve already done something like this and would like to share.
