Presently I am using ODBC connection string to connect database to application.But in connection string,I have to hard code database path.When I have to install it in clients PC,I have to place db in that same location.Is there any way that I can place db anywhere and application considers that db on its own?Or is it possible to make odbc connection(Control Panel->Administrative Tools->data Source(ODBC))directly through code?
Please help me with this.
Thanks in advance.

I know about this solution..
Is there any other way other than this where I dont have to hard code database path.

Without DB Path how you setup DSN in Control Panel?

That is what I dont want to do.I dont want to create DSN manually.It should be done through code.
