Data Source

I am using Dreamweaver and cannot get past the first page of Data Assist Wizard because my datasource it not defined. When I go to Define it, it brings up a small window where I am to enter the Coldfusion Administrator URL. My web host provider does not allow us to administer the Coldfusion server for security reasons but they do allow us to define data sources. I had created page's before without having the data source defined but since I have upgraded to the latest Data Assist, I can't seem to get it going again. My data source is defined by an application.cfm page which lists my data source like this: <cfset application.dsn="RGCF_be">

Pages I had created before continue to work but within DW under data sources it does not show a database defined. In the code of a typical query it lists this: <cfquery datasource="#WA_connection#" username="username" password="password">

I need to create a new form to insert, modify data into existing data fields within my already working database but cannot get past this first part. Could someone please help me with the fix to this problem. I am on a deadline so need solution quickly
