Your Mac OS X system must not be version 10.6 or later.
The SQL Anywhere ODBC driver must be installed.
The ODBC Administrator Tool for Mac OS X must be installed. This tool is available from Apple.
The ODBC Administrator Tool for Mac OS X must be configured to use the SQL Anywhere ODBC driver first. Once this is done, then you may create data sources that use this driver.
Use of the ODBC Administrator Tool requires that either the ODBCINI or ODBC_INI environment variable be used to specify the non-standard location and file name of the ODBC initialization file (~/Library/ODBC/odbc.ini).
To avoid this issue, you can use the Data Source utility (dbdsn) to create ODBC data sources on Mac OS X.
Storing user IDs, encrypted or unencrypted passwords, and database keys in a data source is not recommended.
The ODBC data source is created.
