There should be an entry in the registry. Create a new ODBC connection with a weird name and then do a search with RegEdit for that name. I should be there. Just recreate the values using AUTOIT or by exporting them to a .reg file wich can be imported from the commandline.

You can also use a File DSN instead of the Machine or User DSN that are written to the registry.

You can create a template on one machine and then copy and modify the file as appropriate on new machines. Here is some info from Microsoft: XL: How to Use File DSNs and DSN-less Connections


Free Internet Tools: DebugBar, AutoIt IE Builder, HTTP UDF, MODIV2, IE Developer Toolbar, IEDocMon, Fiddler, HTML Validator, WGet, curl

MSDN docs: InternetExplorer Object, Document Object, Overviews and Tutorials, DHTML Objects, DHTML Events, WinHttpRequest, XmlHttpRequest, Cross-Frame Scripting, Office object model

Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
