[R] Specify Database location from R

I believe you will have to go into your ODBC configuration software 
outside of R, find where "SOUTHAMPTON" is defined, and change it so 
that it connects to that "different part of the server". Note that 
"different part of the server" is not standard database terminology, 
so it's kind of hard to guess exactly what needs to be done. You may 
need assistance from your database managers.
