Importing ODBC Driver into Registry with Password

Importing ODBC Driver into Registry with Password

Importing ODBC Driver into Registry with Password

I have new odbc drivers that have to be set up on a bundle of computers. I have exported the registry info from my laptop where they are set up. Then I have created a file called 'MasterRegistry.reg', which has all the entries combined. I even pulled in the entries for the ODBC Data Sources area, so that they show up in Control Panel.

My question is: Is there a way to pass in the password for the SQL Server when I import these? Can I add a field to the .reg entries? Or will i have to edit each entry on each machine?
