How to clear out bad configurations from MyODBC driver?

P: n/a
It can be replicated by anyone having a windoze box with Access 97 and
the MyODBC 3.51 driver installed. In Access, click File, Get External
Data, Link Tables. For Type of File, choose ODBC Databases. Select
Data Source window opens, choose Machine Data Source and all the Data
Source configurations are listed there. Some (I no longer use) are
useless and I would like to remove them. I've found no way to do 'em
so far.

Thx.

You have to open the ODBC Administrator (for Win XP):

Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Data Sources
(ODBC)

Click the Machine Data Source and highlight the DSN you want to delete
then click the Remove button; click the Yes button. Done.
