I think that what you are asking is how one can call various functions in the
win32 API so that an ODBC data source gets added to the list maintained by ODBC
driver manager. Whilst I have no experience in this area, it would be
interesting to know how one might achieve this. Perhaps it is a case of calling
methods in various COM interfaces.
