[Micronet] next meeting 4/12 10am-12 noon

Kathleen Valerio

Hi all,


The next Datanet meeting will be held April 12th 10-12pm in 28 University Hall


Anna Maurer will be presenting


The standard definition is “Open Database Connectivity” (ODBC) provides a standard software Application Programming Interface (API) method for using database management systems (DBMS). The designers of ODBC aimed to make it independent of programming languages, database systems, and operating systems.”  A dry description for the ability to use several different databases in one application, such as an Access/Filemaker application front end with a SQL, MySQL, Oracle, Basis, *and* a Fox Pro backend. Just to name a few.


In this presentation, Anna Maurer from Rec Sports will cover the basic and intermediary aspects of using ODBC to link multiple databases together. Tips, tricks, pitfalls, pros, and cons will be discussed. Discussion of various databases and what drivers are needed and how to set them up will also be reviewed.


The session will run roughly 1hr to 90 minutes with the balance of time available for Q&A and general sharing of problems and ideas with individuals or the group.


See you there.
