ODBC Portal

Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) is an application programming interface for accessing databases with SQL.

Starting with version 3.0, the ODBC API was aligned with the international standard SQL Call Level Interface (SQL/CLI). There are commercial and freeware implementations of ODBC and ODBC drivers for Windows operating systems, Linux, Macintosh operating systems and various flavors of Unix.
