I created a new user DSN in ODBC Admin. Then I started to create an SSIS project to use it. I ran the import/export wizard to create the links but realized half-way through that I had erred on the DSN definition. So, back to ODBC admin I went. I corrected the error and tried to run the wizard again in BIDS. However, it was unaware of the change I had just made to the DSN definition. I actually had to completely exit BIDS and launch it anew to get to the revised DSN definition.

So, my question is: Is there a way to tell BIDS that it needs to refresh its ODBC info?

not something you can do from UI directly. Best thing would be to relaunch.
