Configuring ODBC Connectivity

You can configure ODBC connectivity to a Microsoft Access or Excel database.
The following steps provide a guideline for configuring ODBC connectivity. For specific instructions, see the database documentation.
  1. Create an ODBC data source using the driver provided by Microsoft.
  2. To avoid using empty string or nulls, use the reserved words PmNullUser for the user name and PmNullPasswd for the password when you create a database connection.
