I'm not 100% sure what you are looking at. If you would like a different way to look at setting up an ODBC connection try this site: http://www.herongyang.com/jdbc/JDBC-ODBC-DSN-for-SQL-Server.html I personally have never tried to use one of the strings they are talking about on connectionstrings.com. I always go throught the administrative tools to the Data Source (ODBC). Then it is just a matter of choosing a new system DSN and following the wizard. It's maybe not an option for you but I thought I'd mention it. Can't hurt right?
