Question: What is ODBC and the SQLAdmin section?

Answer: Open DataBase Connectivity (ODBC) is an Application Programming Interface (API) that allows a programmer to abstract a program from a database. Many software products that run in the Windows operating environment adhere to this standard, giving users access to data that was created with other software. The ODBC Driver Manager was created by Microsoft to manage various ODBC drivers.

The SQLAdmin section is responsible for listing the ODBC drivers that the DigaSystem implements. The name that is entered under SQLAdmin must correspond to the name that appears in the "Driver" column of the system dialog "ODBC Datasource Administrator".
