ODBC data sources on Windows Mobile

Windows Mobile does not provide an ODBC driver manager or an ODBC data source administrator. On Windows Mobile, SQL Anywhere uses ODBC data sources stored in files. To use these data source definitions, use either the DSN or the FILEDSN connection parameter; on Windows Mobile, DSN and FILEDSN are synonyms.


Storing user IDs, encrypted or unencrypted passwords, and database keys in a data source is not recommended.
