xfODBC User’s Guide

Version 10.3.3

This guide serves two groups of ODBC users: developers who create Synergy databases and are responsible for making them ODBC‑enabled, and end‑users who use xfODBC as a tool for accessing data. This guide is written for users who are already familiar with database concepts and terminology and with the platforms discussed in this guide.
