ODBC connections

By jeannethe ·
Where does NT store the ODBC connection information in the registry. Is there a particular file that can be copied to recreate the connections?

ODBC connection information is stored in a number of places in the registry. Each ODBC connection will make approximately 8 or 9 registry entries with different information. It would be a waste of time to try and do it this way. In control panel, goto ODBC Data Sources and recreate them that way. Generally quicker.

Given that, you could take a registry snapshot now, recreate the connections and take another snapshot and have the differences pulled and create a reg file for future use.
