ODBC conformance

SQL Anywhere provides support for ODBC 3.5, which is supplied as part of the Microsoft Data Access Kit 2.7.

Levels of ODBC support

ODBC features are arranged according to level of conformance. Features are either Core, Level 1, or Level 2, with Level 2 being the most complete level of ODBC support. These features are listed in the ODBC Programmer's Reference, which is available from Microsoft Corporation as part of the ODBC software development kit or from the Microsoft web site, at [external link]

Features supported by SQL Anywhere

SQL Anywhere supports the ODBC 3.5 specification.

ODBC backward compatibility

Applications developed using older versions of ODBC continue to work with SQL Anywhere and the newer ODBC driver manager. The new ODBC features are not provided for older applications.

The ODBC driver manager

Microsoft Windows includes an ODBC driver manager. For Unix, an ODBC driver manager is supplied with SQL Anywhere.
