It doesn't seem possible, so I am resigned to making it work in the FWTools
DOS shell.  Is it possible to make a DSN-less ODBC connection?  In other
words, can I specify my data source on the fly without having to go through
the ODBC Administrator and setting up every single Access file as a DSN? 
Something along the lines of:

ODBC:"Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};Dbq=c:\somepath\mydb.mdb;" 

(Lifted from

Otherwise I'll have to write something in Perl using Win32::ODBC to loop
through all of my Access files and set up a DSN for each one.
