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.

Then it will try to connect database using entered information
