Write the following code in VFP :

    # Define ODBC_ADD_DSN 1

    Declare INTEGER SQLConfigDataSource IN odbccp32.dll;
        INTEGER ,;
        SHORT ,;
        STRING @,;
        STRING @
    Lc_Driver = "driver name"    +CHR(0)

    lc_dsn = "dsn=MyFirstDsn"+CHR(0)+;
            "Server=server name"+CHR(0)+;
            "database=Database name"+CHR(0)+;

    fResult = SQLConfigDataSource( 0,ODBC_ADD_DSN,@lc_driver,@lc_dsn)
