Using Data Sources (ODBC)

You can use Data Sources Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) to access data from a variety of database management systems. For example, if you have a program that accesses data in a SQL database, Data Sources (ODBC) will let you use the same program to access data in a Visual FoxPro database. To do this, you must add software components called drivers to your system. Data Sources (ODBC) helps you add and configure these drivers.


  • To open Data Sources (ODBC), click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Data Sources (ODBC).

  • For information about using Data Sources (ODBC), in the ODBC Data Source Administrator dialog box, click Help.
