Description fredvej 2004-10-07 11:06:54 UTC
Running OOo 1.1.2 on Windows XP Pro, I have been unable to use an ODBC
connection defined as a File DSN.

Have done this :
- Windows : create an ODBC connection on the File DSN tab.
- OOo : create a new data source in "Data Source Administration" using database
type ODBC.
Data source URL : click browse button to get list of ODBC data sources
The list of ODBC connections contains only types System DSN and User DSN, the
File DSN is missing !

It doesn't help to write the full path to the DSN file in the URL field.

M$ Excel is able to use the FIle DSN mentioned above.

I just installed 1.1.3, and the behaviour is exactly the same as in 1.1.2 - no
File DSN ODBC to choose from in the drop down list.

I reassign this issue to User Experience for evaluating.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
