When connecting to a database, select either ODBC, the .NET Data Provider for Teradata, or the .NET Data Provider for Oracle. Connection to any other database must be made through an ODBC connection. In order to use the ODBC connection, a vendor specific 32‑bit ODBC driver must be installed. In order to use a .NET Data Provider, that provider must be downloaded and installed.
See the following sections:
Note: The .NET providers only appear in the dropdown list if they have been installed on the client system.
