    : many thanx for your all help

    Ok, first of all, work on your English. It's hard enough to know what you mean in the first place, but since you've got one long run-on sentence there I can only guess at what your question is. ODBC is just a way to allow different programs to access different databases in a standard way. When you set up an ODBC you are basically creating a sort of generic interface to a database (it doesn't matter where that database is located) so programs on your machine can manipulate it without having to worry about the connection details.
