How do I configure ODBC Link to sync to my own database?

This can be modified using one of the two methods below:


Create a New DSN:

  1. Navigate to Control Panel-->Admistrative Tools and double click Data Sources (ODBC). 
    1. ***Please note:  If you are using a 64-bit version of Windows, you need to open this ODBC Administrator via c:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe.
  2. Choose the System DSN tab and select ADD.
  3. Choose the appropriate driver for your database and select Finish.
  4. Enter relevant information about your DSN and select the Database file.
  5. When complete select OK to close all windows.
  6.  Open TracerPlus ODBC Link/TracerPlus Connect and navigate to ODBC Configuration.
  7.  Select your newly added DSN and choose your table.


Point the PTS TracerPlus Sample DSN to your database (This only applies to MS Access users):

  1. Navigate to Control Panel-->Admistrative Tools and double click Data Sources (ODBC).
    1. ***Please note:  If you are using a 64-bit version of Windows, you need to open this ODBC Administrator via c:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe.
