i would say the description in the dictionary is wrong and therefore your script. ;)

I am using it as follows

put revopendatabase("ODBC",DsnName,Databasename,Username,Password)

My call to MSSQL is as follows

put revopendatabase("ODBC",DsnName,,Username,Password)

Username and Password is optional, if defined in the DSN.

I do not add the DB name, because the database name is already defined in the DSN, while username and passwors isn´t for security reaons..
