Why can't? There is no special steps involved in sequencing application which has ODBC connections.. Follow the normal sequencing method..

It is highly recommended that you create dummy ODBC entries on the sequencer workstation prior to starting the sequencing process.

If an ODBC DSN setting does not exist on the base Sequencer image and the application being packaged creates ODBC DNS settings, the entire registry key associated with ODBC settings will become virtualized. This will prevent the packaged virtualized application from seeing any ODBC DSN settings that exist in the local O/S of the client PC. If an ODBC DSN setting already exists on the Sequencer machine, only the ODBC DSN settings that are created by the application program during sequencing will be virtualized, and the ODBC settings on the client will be merged with the ODBC settings in the package.

I totally agree with Jagadeish. He has mentioned the right way to create an environmnet before starting the sequencing of the application.
