The Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) provide the Data Link Properties dialog box as the common user interface for specifying connection information to a data provider on Windows 2000 and later operating systems.
You can use the Data Link Properties dialog box to save connection information in a universal data link (.udl) file.
Universal data link files (or '.udl files') provide a common user interface for specifying connection attributes.
A user can use a Data Link Properties dialog box to save connection information in a .udl file as an alternative to directly specifying them by hand in a connection string.
Consequently, these files provide a convenient level of indirection.
Additionally, the dialog box specifies a number of alternate OLE DB data providers for a variety of target applications
This example is used to generate UDL File. This file is used to connect SQL database.
Installation and instructions:
1. Run Create UDl_SQL. VI
2. Enter Database server name and password
3. Enter Database name and click OK button.
