26.1. MySQL Connector/ODBC

MySQL provides support for ODBC by means of MySQL Connector/ODBC, the family of MyODBC drivers. This is the reference for the Connector/ODBC product family of MyODBC drivers that provide ODBC 3.5x compliant access to the MySQL Database System. It teaches you how to install MyODBC and how to use it. There is also information about common programs that are known to work with MyODBC and answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about MyODBC.

This reference applies to MyODBC 3.51. You can find a manual for an older version of MyODBC in the binary or source distribution for that version.

This is a reference to the MySQL ODBC drivers, not a general ODBC reference. For more information about ODBC, refer to

The application development part of this reference assumes a good working knowledge of C, general DBMS knowledge, and finally, but not least, familiarity with MySQL. For more information about MySQL functionality and its syntax, refer to
