Editing an existing ODBC Datasource to point to a different database

If you would like to edit an existing DSN to point to a different database, here are the steps you need to follow:

 (NOTE: Unless the new database has the same table names and field names as the original, you may be required to re-configure TracerPlus Connect field mappings, and could be better off simply creating a new datasource)

  1. Close the TracerPlus Connect application if it is open.
  2. Open the ODBC Data Source Administrator application. 
  3. Navigate to the System DSN tab.
  4. Select the System Data Source you wish to change from the list, then press the "configure" button on the right.
  5. In the new window, press the "select" button underneath your currently selected database.
  6. Navigate to the location of the new database file that you wish to use.
  7. Click the "OK" button.
  8. Re-open TracerPlus Connect, select your datasource and ensure that your field mappings are all correct.
