Data Source Names

This page is a stub. Please help us by expanding or merging it with applicable content

Technically, a data structure used to describe a connection to a data source. When creating ODBC links, Access may ask us if we want to create a DSN. DSN's are a convenient way to graphically represent a connection (eg - select one from a named list) without having to remember all the details, but can also leak password information as described in this blog.

Typically, a DSN-Less Connection is preferred for security reasons.
