DataFlex applications often need to connect to multiple data sources. ODBC is the industry standard means to accomplish that. We recently encountered Cdata - a single vendor offering a wide variety of ODBC specific database drivers that might work for your external data requirements. See my blog about the DataFlex ODBC API and the database-specific ODBC drivers needed to make such a connection.

Note: this is information only, not an endorsement of Cdata – we’ve not tested their products. If you use their ODBC drivers or others, please share your experience.
