This integration uses the Microsoft ADO.NET Provider for ODBC as a bridge between the ODBC Driver and the Active Query Builder objects to build a visual SQL composer. </p> <h2>Connect to [service] as an ODBC Data Source</h2> <p>If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name).
