Hi Abu

This "error" message means, that you have correctly created a ODBC DSN with the MyODBC
driver ;)

In order to actually use this DSN (== connect to the mysql server), you have to use a
client program, that supports ODBC connection.

For example you can use M$ Access as such a client.
1) Start Access.
2) Create a new empty database in Access and name it whatever you like e.g.
3) Goto File->External data->link tables.
4) Choose the Filetype 'ODBC databases'.
5) Select 'MyDNS'.
6) Start linking.
7) Choose the tables you want to look at.
8) Double click on a tablename to open this table.

That's it :)
