Note: Windows 2000 no longer contains the "New | Microsoft Data Link" menu  anymore. You can add the Data Link menu back in the menu list by running the "C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Ole DB\newudl.reg" reg file, then right-click on the desktop and select "New | Microsoft Data
Link" menu.

Or you can also create a Data Link file by creating a text file and change it's file extension to ".udl", then double-click the file.
