Excell via ODBC

Hi,

I have ported a aloder LV project from a Win3.11 engine
to a Win NT4

This project accesses .xls data via ODBC

Question : in ODBC access setting, folder "User DNS"
you must select a Workbook ( a *.xls file )

This means it accesses only this named file.

How to make ODBC access any in LV specified file without
reconfiguring the ODBC Data Sources ?

Or can LV rename a *.xls to a given constant name ? this would
solve my problem too

Thanks

Jean-Luc

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:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/ODBC/

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,

Wiebe.
