CompareData requires ODBC 3.5 compliant drivers to connect to databases. Most DBMS vendors provide ODBC drivers as part of a client install or free for download. Also third-party software vendors provide ODBC drivers for most major DBMSs but usually require a license or a fee. It is recommended to use the DBMS vendor ODBC driver whenever it is possible. If the DBMS vendor ODBC driver does not work as needed, then you may want to evaluate a third-party ODBC driver.
