Create ODBC Connections the Easy Way

Patrick Headley

Discover the little known RegisterDatabase() function within Microsoft Access. This function allows you to create ODBC connections without the need to write an installation script. It makes it so easy, even your application users will be able to create ODBC connections and they won't even know they did it. The presentation will describe the RegisterDatabase() function and then show you how to combine it with global variables and compiler arguments to create a flexible application that can automatically select the right data source for the environment it is placed in.
