Creating File DSN data source

Hi All,

Have anyone tried creating a data source connection for File DSN (A type of ODBC data source)? if yes, please post what exact steps to be followed to make a file DSN connection.

(File DSN can be seen at windows control panel --> Administrative tools --> Data sources (ODBC))

Regards

    Hi Roshan,

    Please read below example.. It is for SQL server so just select Oracle instead of that during configuration.

    Hi Rajesh thanks for that.

    I had tried the first link.

    To be more specific on my iissue -
    I have already created the file DSN but this file DSN has no data source name attached to it, am not even able to assign a data source name it.

    Now there are two issues -
    1. We need data source name while creating a new data source in weblogic admin console, which i am not able assign/find.
    2. Is it possible to create a data source in weblogic admin console without using data source name, if yes, how can i do it?

    Problem is with creating the connection URL which will contain driver name, machine name, port number and the data source name.

    Regards
    Roshan
