What is ODBC?
Posted by Vitaliy Gutyk (AIT) on 20 March 2018 05:03 PM

Microsoft's ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) is a general interface for access to SQL-compatible databases. SQL is used as a standard mechanism for data access.

The interface ensures a high degree of interaction: one application can refer to different SQL-compatible DBMS (Data Base Management Systems) via generic code. This allows a developer to create and distribute “client/server” applications without worrying about the characteristics of a specific DBMS.

ODBC is a useful tool to access the Projetex database from another machine, without using a Workstation.

For details about connecting to ODBC, please consult the topic "ODBC" in the Projetex help file (press F1 to call it up from any table or "New/Edit" window).
