I don't know exactly what ODBC driver might be installed, what ODBC administrator is used, etc., etc., for your application. Hey, I don't even know if you're running Windows, eh? Usual disclaimers. > An appl odbc connect code will just reference the data source name and the > table name, no qualified library ? The default library of the cae data > source is then used to qualify the table ? Now, if the application uses fully qualified references, then any library list manipulation is moot. I suspect the only way you'll know for certain is via testing. No access to source, right? There are other ways of doing ODBC overrides, but your stated requirement was that it be external to the application. If we can't get inside, the library list is the low-hanging fruit. I imagine the worst that could happen is that the library list change would be ignored due to qualified references. At least it's relatively risk-free with minimal effort. BTW, does the application connect with its own internal profile or does it use the PC user's profile? Good luck!
