Support indirect pointers to databases as Data Source
There are times when I need to keep the location of a Data Source as flexible as possible. During development the Data Source might point to one location, but the deployment might need another location.
In VB6, I could use a .udl (Universal Data Link) file as the source of the file location, but in VS, if I try to use a .udl file in Add Connection, I get an error message "Unrecognized database format".
I'd like to suggest that we have the ability to have indirect pointers for Data Sources.
