Btrieve ODBC Driver

The Pervasive SQL (Btrieve) ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with Btrieve-based databases directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity.

Access Btrieve databases from virtually anywhere through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Btrieve data as a data source.

The CData ODBC Driver for Btrieve seamlessly integrates Btrieve data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access Btrieve data as a database. This article shows how to create an data source for Btrieve in DBArtisan and execute queries. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Btrieve Data into DBArtisan Projects

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

The PSQL v13 client will need to be installed on the same machine as the driver. To connect, set the User, Password, Server, and Database properties.

You can then follow the steps below to register Btrieve data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic ODBC.
  3. Enter a name for the data source and select the DSN.
  4. Finish the wizard to connect to Btrieve data. Btrieve entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with Btrieve data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the Btrieve API.
