CData ODBC Driver for SQL Server
The CData ODBC Driver for SQL Server enables real-time access to SQL Server data, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity, the most widely supported interface for connecting applications with data.
The driver wraps the complexity of accessing SQL Server data in a standard ODBC driver compliant with ODBC 3.8. The driver hides the complexity of accessing data and provides additional powerful security features, smart caching, batching, socket management, and more.
- Bidirectional access.
- Access, analyze, and report on data with your SQL-based tool of choice.
- Supports 32-bit and 64-bit applications.
- Supports the Unicode ODBC APIs and ODBC 3.8.
- Drivers for Windows, Linux, and macOS/OS X.
See Getting Started to create an ODBC data source name (DSN) and connect to SQL Server from your platform.
Advanced Features details additional features supported by the driver, such as , ssl configuration, firewall/proxy settings, and advanced logging.
Using the ODBC Driver
See Using from Tools for information on using the ODBC driver in some of the popular applications and programming languages that connect via ODBC. See Using ODBC to connect to SQL Server from the following programming languages and for information on the supported interfaces:
See the SQL Server integration guides for information on connecting from other applications.
The Connection properties describe the various options that can be used to establish a connection.
