There are a number of requirements that must be satisfied if you intend to use USoft for ODBC. See your USoft Definer Guide for a description of USoft for ODBC and its use.

USoft for ODBC is currently tested for use in combination with Watcom SQL for Windows V4.0.

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 could be useful when you wish to work with an RDBMS other than those directly supported by USoft (e.g. Oracle, Sybase, Microsoft SQL Server). A restriction is that there must be an ODBC driver for this external (R)DBMS and that ODBC driver must support at least the requirements listed here.

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