    Are you refering to an ODBC datasource for Oracle connection?
    If so, go to the MS ODBC Administrator and:
    - Click on System DSN tab> Add
    - Select the name of the Oracle driver (vg. Oracle in Ora9i); click Finish
    - Set Data source name to your name of DB
    - Set Decription (optional)
    - Set TNS Service name = name of DB service in TNSNAME.ora file.
    - Set User ID = Oracle user id (optional).
    - Click OK.
