This tip describes how to set up an ODBC data source with Lotus Script.

Avoid desktop visits & Windows Control pannel in order to add a data source.
Samples script uses Oracle data source but can also be used for Notes database.


'Add Data Source:

Option Public Option Explicit Const ODBC_ADD_DSN = 1 ' Add data source Const ODBC_CONFIG_DSN = 2 ' Configure (edit) data source Const ODBC_REMOVE_DSN = 3 ' Remove data source Const ODBC_ADD_SYS_DSN = 4 ' Add system data source ' to customize this script, modify the attributes DSN = YourName, Server = YourServer,
Database = YourDBPath ' don't forget to modify the final message box.

Dim dbDriver As String Dim dbAttributes As String Dim result As Integer Declare Function SQLConfigDataSource Lib "ODBCCP32.DLL"
(Byval hwndParent As Long, Byval fRequest As Long, Byval lpszDriver
As String, Byval lpszAttributes As String) As Long Sub Initialize dbDriver = "Microsoft ODBC for Oracle" dbAttributes = "DSN=Oasis" & Chr$(0) _ & "Description=Pull from Oasis" & Chr$(0) _ & "Server=xxxxx" & Chr$(0)

result = SQLConfigDataSource(0, ODBC_ADD_DSN, dbDriver, dbAttributes) If (False = result) Then Msgbox "There was an error establishing the connection.
You will have to do it manually.", 16, "Failure" Else Msgbox "Data Source Name ""Oasis Connection"" configured." End If

End Sub Sub Terminate End Sub 'Add Data Source: Option Public Option Explicit Const ODBC_ADD_DSN = 1 ' Add data source Const ODBC_CONFIG_DSN = 2 ' Configure (edit) data source Const ODBC_REMOVE_DSN = 3 ' Remove data source Const ODBC_ADD_SYS_DSN = 4 ' Add system data source ' to customize this script, modify the attributes DSN = YourName, Server = YourServer,
