data source

A data source includes both the source of data itself, such as relational database, a flat-file database, or even a text file, and the connection information necessary for accessing the data. Connection information may include such things as server location, database name, logon ID, and other driver options. Data source information is usually stored in a DSN (Data Source Name).
