ODBC (Open Data Base Connectivity)
ResSched supports Open Data Base Connectivity (ODBC). ODBC allows customers to use their own database managers, spreadsheets, and other applications to generate reports and analysis using ResSched data. To access ResSched data from other applications, you must have the 32 bit ODBC driver for TopSpeed data files. ResSched Corporate Edition licensees received a single-user, read-only ODBC driver as part of their download archive.
To install the ODBC driver on a workstation:
To configure the ResSched data file as an ODBC data source:
Some ODBC applications require special configuration of the data source. The installation program has installed a Help file for the Soft Velocity ODBC driver on your work station.
The ODBC driver provided is a read only driver. There is a read/write driver available as well, but because using this driver can corrupt your ResSched data, we only provide the read/write driver and its key on request.
If you need to use the ODBC driver on more than one workstation, you must purchase additional licenses from Madrigal Soft Tools or, if you need four or more workstation licenses, from SoftVelocity Corporation. If you order from SoftVelocity, make sure to use only the 32 bit read-only driver. Using the read/write driver risks making your data files unusable.
