This ODBC Driver is provided by Gupta Technologies. The main functionality of the driver is contained in the file sqlbaseodbc.dll.

Include "Driver=SQLBaseOLEDB" in the connection string to use this driver.


The SQLBase ODBC driver requires:

  • SQLBase version 9.0 or higher.
  • One of the supported operating systems: Microsoft Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000 , XP, or Server 2003.
  • The Microsoft 3.5 Driver Manager. This is included with the SQLBase ODBC driver.

To communicate with the server, the SQLBase driver requires SQLWNTM.DLL, SQLBAPW.DLL, and a communication DLL (for example, SQLWS32.DLL for TCP/IP). The directory containing these files must be on your path.

Client applications written with a Gupta programming tool, such as SQLWindows, cannot use ODBC to connect to SQLBase. For such applications, use the native SQLBase routers instead.


Download the trial package (full SQL Base product). Choose custom install and select only the desired connection components. Those are not under trial license.
