I was working with a users computer yesterday because they complained that an MS-Access Database they were using said that an ODBC datasource was not accessible.

I went to change the settings on the ODBC data source (which was under the systems tab) and no matter which account I logged in with I could not click the data source in question or the ‘Configuration’ button in ‘%windir%\System32\odbcad32.exe’

Is there a group policy or Windows permission that controls access to this?

If so, it seems really good for information security.
