If you’re used to working with PostgreSQL or MySQL databases, then you already know that to connect them with other applications it’s necessary to configure them in a specific way. An essential aspect for the majority of the databases out there is the Open Database Connectivity or ODBC driver, which is often required to be accessed and installed beforehand.
Well, this app allows you to instantly access the MySQL database with an ODBC API that provides native interfaces and driver-manager based interfaces for the MySQL database. This connector will require you to configure the ODBC Data Source Name before connecting to the database because this is the tool that allows communication with the database. Once you do that, you’ll be able to use the MySQL database with Excel or other tools.
Of course, this is the kind of tool that’s explicitly aimed at programmers and developers to do their job. This means that this piece of software requires specific knowledge to understand what steps need to be made and how you can use the features of this app more efficiently. Overall, this connector is handy for people who are continually accessing MySQL databases and need a faster way to do it.
MySQL Connector/ODBC is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in database utils category and is available to all software users as a free download.
