Does anybody know whther it is possible to configure an Excel ODBC data source on the fly from Java. I would like to not have to have specifically set up a DSN pointing at an individual filename - but specify the filename at runtime.
Any help much appreciated.

I think that setting up an ODBC source is a type of security measure in Windows and, as such, may be out of reach of a Java application. Just a guess, though.
