Modify ODBC Connection created from Upsizing Wizard



I recently tried to migrate an Access 2003 database to a SQL Server 2000
database using the Upsizing Wizard. Migration was successful without any
errors. But I could not figure out where is the ODBC connection (which links
to the migrated SQL tables) created and located. There will be a time when
the backend database is moved from the current development database to a
production database that I will have to change the ODBC connection on the
user's pc to point to the production database.

Also, what are the pros/cons of having a frontend Access 2003 versus ADP
Access 2003 in an application connecting to a backend SQL Server 2000

Your prompt response is very much appreciated.

Normally, the ODBC connection information is stored in the DSN that's used
when building the connection string. When that's the case, you need to
ensure that each user has a copy of the same DSN.

It's usually easier to have a DSN-less connection. I should one way to do
that at
