The following example assumes an ODBC data source called MyFoxSQLNT is available. The testdata database is opened, and a connection named Myconn is created. DISPLAY CONNECTIONS is used to display the named connections in the database. The connection is then removed from the database with DELETE CONNECTION.
CLOSE DATABASES OPEN DATABASE (HOME(2) + 'data\testdata') CREATE CONNECTION Myconn DATASOURCE "MyFoxSQLNT" USERID "<userid>" PASSWORD "<password>" CLEAR DISPLAY CONNECTIONS && Displays named connections in the database DELETE CONNECTION Myconn && Removes the connection just created
