Add System DSN

The registry file below creates an ODBC System DSN to the MS-SQL database server "DBServer1". The ODBC connector is formatted as "ODBC_<DatabaseType>_<DatabaseServer>" that results in "ODBC_SQL2005_DBServer1"
Warning:This solution modifies the Windows registry. Back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;* This file creates the File DSN ODBC entries for a MS-SQL database.
;* Just doubleclick it and select "Yes" and "Ok" or run it silent as:
;*      regedit.exe /s Add_System_DSN.reg
;* (C)Copyright 2009-2024 Johan van Soest

; *** Just setting the correct node

; *** Define the new DataSourceName
"ODBC_SQL2005_DBServer1"="SQL Server"

; *** Defining the actual ODBC Connection
; *** Specify the full path to the SQL server Driver
; *** Attention: change to M: for Citrix farm servers

; *** Give a human readable description for use in ODBC control, Excel etc.
; *** Use ServerName\InstanceName to connect to the instance otherwise
; *** ServerName of the database server is sufficient

; *** Using Windows account to log on to the database (permissions
; *** must be set in database!)
