Hi
Is there any way to create an ODBC data source with a DOS script? The target machine has Oracle client installed.
What I want is to avoid using the ODBC wizard.
Thanks a lot for any answer.
Andrei

consider posting this question on a forum other than this one which is for Oracle questions; not questions related to Windows

There is a tool to do it from the command line. Enter

odbcconf.exe /?


to see the usage summary.

There is a Microsoft Article here:

@BlackSwan
I see your point.
My purpose is to access an Oracle database thru ODBC. I don't know if there are Windows-based or Oracle-based solutions. If there is an Oracle based tool / method for creating ODBC data sources, then I'll be happy to be pointed at it by members of this community. I don't expect answers on Windows-based tools / methods, although I won't be sad about them either.
