See Also

USoft for ODBC is a normal USoft application that connects to an (R)DBMS to retrieve and store data. The connection is made via an ODBC Driver. This can be useful when you wish to work with an RDBMS other than those directly supported by USoft. A requirement is that there must be an ODBC driver for this external (R)DBMS and that ODBC driver must support at least the requirements listed in the following section.

USoft for ODBC could be particularly useful when used in combination with a lightweight stand-alone RDBMS (for example, Sybase SQLAnywhere) on a Notebook or Laptop computer for demonstrations, presentations, on-site development, and so on.
