DSN Behaving Badly

P: n/a

the two connections required for an Access query.

(The other connection uses the PostGRE SQL connection and works as

When I created the DSN, I specified that it should use SQL Server
Login as the authentication method, prompting the user for

This all works and I get a successful test in the ODBC Microsoft SQL
Server Setup window.

However, when I attempt to run the query, I get a "Connection Failed"
error and I can see that the connection is attempting to log into the
database using my trusted (LAN) login.

I can then tell it to stop trying to to log into the database using
trusted login and do what I said in the first place. If it was just
me, I'd probably keep doing that, annoying as it is.

Problem is, users with the runtime version of Access never have the
option to tell the DSN to behave.

Anyone know what's going wrong with my DSN?

I have rebuilt the connection and the query and the DB twice, but to
no avail.

How do I force the connection to behave the way it was instructed to
when I built it?
