Creating an ODBC Data Source on Windows to Be Used with the PowerExchange ODBC Unicode Driver

Creating an ODBC Data Source on Windows to Be Used with the PowerExchange ODBC Unicode Driver

You can access multibyte metadata with the Informatica PowerExchange Unicode driver. Use the
ODBC Data Source Administrator
to create a PowerExchange ODBC data source on Windows, and specify the Informatica PowerExchange Unicode driver.
  1. To open the
    ODBC Data Source Administrator
    , perform one of the following actions:
    • If you plan to create a 32-bit data source on a Windows 32-bit system or a 64-bit data source on a Windows 64-bit system, open the
      Control Panel
      and click
      Administrative Tools
      . Then double-click
      Data Sources (ODBC)
      .
    • If you plan to create a 32-bit data source on a Windows 64-bit system, enter the following command at the command prompt:
      %windir%\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe
      Enter this command if you installed the PowerCenter Client, which is a 32-bit application, on a Windows 64-bit system.
    The
    ODBC Data Source Administrator
    dialog box appears.
  2. On the
    System DSN
    tab, click
    Add
    .
    The
    Create New Data Source
    wizard appears.
  3. Select the Informatica PowerExchange Unicode driver from the list of available drivers and click
    Finish
    .
    If this driver is not available, see the
    PowerExchange Installation and Upgrade Guide
    .
    The
    PowerExchange Data Source
    dialog box appears.
  4. On the
    PowerExchange Data Source
    tab, enter the following information:
    • In the
      Name
      box, enter a name for the data source.
    • In the
      Local Codepage
      list, select the
      Unicode for metadata driver
      option.
  5. Click
    OK
    .
    The ODBC data source appears in the
    System Data Sources
    list on the
    System DSN
    tab.
