Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002

' get the list of ODBC drivers through the registry
' returns a collection of strings, each one holding the
' name of a driver, e.g. "Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)"
' requires the EnumRegistryValues function

Function GetODBCDrivers() As Collection
    Dim res As Collection
    Dim values As Variant
    ' initialize the result
    Set GetODBCDrivers = New Collection
    ' the names of all the ODBC drivers are kept as values
    ' under a registry key
    ' the EnumRegistryValue returns a collection
    For Each values In EnumRegistryValues(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, _
        "Software\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\ODBC Drivers")
        ' each element is a two-item array:
        ' values(0) is the name, values(1) is the data
        If StrComp(values(1), "Installed", 1) = 0 Then
            ' if installed, add to the result collection
            GetODBCDrivers.Add values(0), values(0)
        End If
