Your question should really be in the LabVIEW software discussion forum.

That said, the database connection VI's don't have to use a udl file, you can wire a string constant to them.  If you need help with the connection string, I'd suggest you look here, which has loads of examples:

As mentioned you can use a String constant, but a simple way to get this string is to create a .udl file and then open it in a text editor, the connection string is clear text in it. 🙂
