This example illustrates how to connect to a Teradata database server through ODBC.

 

 

Prerequisites:

The Teradata ODBC driver must be installed (see https://downloads.teradata.com/download/connectivity/odbc-driver/windows. This example uses Teradata ODBC Driver for Windows version 16.20.00.

You have the following database connection details: host, username, and password.

 

 

To connect to Teradata through ODBC:

1.Press the Windows key, start typing "ODBC", and select Set up ODBC data sources (32-bit) from the list of suggestions. If you have a 64-bit ODBC driver, select Set up ODBC data sources (64-bit) and use 64-bit MapForce in the subsequent steps.

8.Click System DSN, select the data source created previously, and then click Connect.

 

Note:If you get the following error: "The driver returned invalid (or failed to return) SQL_DRIVER_ODBC_VER: 03.80", make sure that the path to the ODBC client (for example, C:\Program Files\Teradata\Client\16.10\bin, if you installed it to this location) exists in your system's PATH environment variable. If this path is missing, add it manually.
