Flowgear supports integration with Microsoft SQL databases directly through the SQL Query and SQL Table Update Connectors.

You can connect to other databases via either our ODBC or OLEDB connectors namely:

Working with ODBC

  1. Obtain and install the appropriate ODBC driver
  2. Install a DropPoint on the machine you've installed the ODBC driver on
  3. Provide a connection string that specifies the ODBC driver that you want to use (http://connectionstrings.com is a good resource for obtaining ODBC driver connection strings).
