ODBC Datasource Format

Somehow, our ODBCDatasource.inf file has gotten corrupted on deployment
server. I can see all of the sources, but I don't know what the proper
format of the file is. I opened a call with JDE, but I have not gotten a
response back. It is more of a 'pain in the butt' issue in that when a new
client is installed, incorrect ODBC entries are created, and the client ends
up with issues,etc.
So does anyone have the format for the file?

Thanks,
John

John,

File is quite straight forward. If it is not corrupted to rubbish, you
can open it and edit with Notepad.

In case you've lost the file altogether (I hope you did not), here is a
snap from our SQL7, Xe install (... means more of the same, Access DS
are NOT listed here, ENTSERVER is your DATABASE server):
[JDE Data Sources]
Deployment=Data Dictionary - B733 #This can be anything, I
guess
[ODBC Data Sources]
Data Dictionary - B7333=SQL Server
...
[Data Dictionary - B7333]
Driver=C:\WINNT\System32\sqlsrv32.dll
Description=Data Dictionary - B7333
Server=ENTSERVER
UseProcForPrepare=0
Database=JDE7333
AutoTranslate=No
