Description: The Statistical Analysis System (SAS) Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) Driver is an implementation of the ODBC interface standard that enables the user to access, manipulate, and update SAS data sources from applications that are ODBC-compliant. This technology connects from an ODBC-compliant application to SAS servers, SAS Scalable Performance Data (SPD) Servers, or a local instance of a SAS ODBC server.

This technology supports connectivity with SAS data sets, flat files, and data from VA-supported third party relational database management systems (DBMS).
