    Unanswered: passwordless odbc connection

    DB2 9.7 FP4 on windows

    I have an ODBC data source defined for the SAMPLE database on the server.
    I am opening MSAccess on the same server and trying to Import External Data.

    When using the DSN Name SAMPLE, it pormpts for a userid and password.

    Is it possible to configure the ODBC DSN not to prompt for a user and password, but use the log on credentials (like using a DB2 command window without password) ?

    Thanks

    Good DBAs are not formed in a week or a month. They are created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good DBAs.
