x64 Windows OBDC

Just a quick tip for Database nerds. In x64 versions of Windows there are two ODBC control panels, one is for 64bit ODBC drivers the other is for 32bit ODBC drivers.

You can access the 32bit control panel with:
%WINDIR%\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe

You can access the 64bit control panel with:
%WINDIR%\System32\odbcad32.exe

Both these can be entered into Run.

Google Fail!
