[S] OdbcConnection parameter in import.data function.

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to use the "OdbcConnection" parameter of the "import.data" function when connecting to ODBC data sources? The S-PLUS Programmer's Guide states that this is an encrypted character string (presumably specifying the server, user id, password, etc.) but no clue is offered as to how to obtain this encryption.

Thanks for any help,
Norm
