    Allow user to setup/alter ODBC connection

    Rather than either (a) force a 'standard' location for d/b, or (b) have the user play around in Control Panel with ODBC Sources, if we allow the user to browse to where they have actually placed the d/b, what (registry?) entries need to be setup/altered (Access & SQL).

    Thanks Greg
