PowerExchange ODBC Driver Overview

PowerExchange ODBC Driver Overview

PowerExchange provides thin ODBC drivers that PowerCenter and other clients can use to connect to a data source through PowerExchange.
To define a PowerExchange ODBC data source on Linux or UNIX, edit the odbc.ini file.
To define a PowerExchange ODBC data source on Windows, use the
Windows ODBC Data Source Administrator
.
PowerExchange also defines SQL escape sequences that you can use to override PowerExchange defaults when you connect to a data source by using a PowerExchange ODBC driver.
