Maybe this helps, allthough it's no exact awnser to your question (I think..).
You can create, modify and read the ODBC sources through the registry:
for user dsn:
All the available drivers are in ODBCINST.INI, all sources are in ODBC.INI. You could modify a ODBC NSD's source file to point to the desired file.
Use regedit to debug.
Hope it helps,
