Part VII: Appendixes > Getting ODBC Driver Help

C.5. Getting ODBC Driver Help

You may be able to get some limited help for an ODBC driver by starting the DSN creation process through the ODBC Administrator and then clicking the Help button once a driver-specific dialog appears. This brings up the ODBC Microsoft Desktop Database Drivers Help file. However, this information is at best sketchy and often misleading. For instance, under the topic Connection Strings, the help file says that a connection string includes the following keywords:

  • DSN: Name of the data source

  • DBQ: Name of the directory

  • DRIVERID: An integer ID for the driver

  • FIL: File type
