Standard Support - Included for all Active Customers

We provide standard technical support via email. We do our best to answer the messages quickly, so you can get your job done. Support is prioritized in favor of people who have purchased the premium support package and the product in question.

  • Includes anytime access to our Online Knowledge Base, which provides hundreds of common questions and their answers, explained in a simple, straightforward manner.
  • Includes anytime access to our CData Community, a space where CData customers and users can share knowledge and resources, ask questions, and get answers.
  • Includes email support covering licensing, installation, and other issues related to our products.

NOTE: Before you contact technical support, please visit the CData Community site. Chances are that by browsing through its multiple technical articles, videos, and discussion threads, you will get an instant answer to your problem. If you can't find what you’re looking for, ask a question on our forums, which are consistently monitored by CData employees. Then you may also want to look through the demo applications that come pre-installed — they show how to perform many functions with the controls.
