in thread Can I set the DSN for an ODBC connection?

I read the question to be asking for a way to actually create a DSN for an ODBC driver. I don't think that can be done via DBI at all. On the other hand, the syntax you gave is correct for accessing an ODBC source via DBI, which might be what was wanted. I'm not really clear what the OP is asking.

    ah...good point.

    I dug around and it seems that Win32::ODBC supports a ConfigDSN method to add a new DSN but I have no way to test such an animal in my working environ.

[stevieb]: agreed. That's why I said at least a half-dozen. If enough of the different formats are present, the date/time folk may not have to request more. If they do, then at least there was a decent base to start with
[stevieb]: I do date and time transformations in both Perl and Python, but not frequently enough to not have to search for the format params etc ;)
