    Can I search about a DSN to know if it already exists or not and if not how can I create one from the code (RDO).

    Well ...

    Frankly, I won't be of much help, but just thought you could use some clues.

    I had an old edition of a book named 'Building Client-Server Applications using VB 5.0' which used RDO extensively, and described how some API function could be used to create a DSN. If you can get your hands on a copy of this book, or an updated one for VB 6.0, you can find out how it creates a DSN through code.

    Or check out the API section, although I doubt if they will know about this one. ODBC is so old ....

    I am not a complete idiot. Some parts are still missing.
    Check out the rtf-help tutorial

    Change is the only constant thing. I have not changed my signature in a long while and now it has started to stink!

    And if that response was mine, please think about giving me a rep. I like to collect them!
